    Cookgirl's Note:

    Owing much to the inspiration and Southern Charm of Impera_Magna, I am venturing into the world of grits and posting my first grits' recipe! Use a regional onion available where you live: Vidalia, Maui, Walla Walla, etc. however a standard yellow onion will work fine. Please, feel free to substitute another good quality (goat) melting cheese: fontina, havarti, manchego, etc. Although this recipe wouldn't win a beauty contest, it makes up for it in taste and congeniality.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 large vidalia onion, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
    • 1 cup quick-cooking grits (not instant)
    • 2 2/3-3 cups water (I use less water for thicker grits)
    • 2 ounces fresh goat cheese (I used chevre)
    • salt and pepper
    • fresh parsley, to garnish

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add butter to skillet and swirl to coat.
    2. 2
      Add onions, cover and cook for about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Uncover and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions reach a deep, golden brown color. This should take about 25 minutes, but will depend on how thinly the onion is sliced.
    4. 4
      Remove the caramelized onions and add water to skillet, scraping up any brown bits that may have formed.
    5. 5
      Bring water to rapid boil and gradually whisk in grits, *making sure* to prevent any clumps from forming.
    6. 6
      Cover and reduce heat to medium-low.
    7. 7
      Cook until grits are thickened, approximately five minutes, adding more water if necessary. Note: For thicker consistency, I cook the grits for 7 minutes total.
    8. 8
      Remove from heat and stir in the caramelized onions.
    9. 9
      Crumble in goat cheese and stir to combine.
    10. 10
      Add salt and pepper to taste.
    11. 11
      Serve immediately.
    12. 12
      Garnish with fresh parsley.
