DIRECTIONS

  • Combine whipping cream and 3 cups chicken stock in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Gradually stir in grits. Cook over medium heat until mixture returns to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 25 minutes, or until creamy.
  • While grits cook, pour remaining 1 cup chicken stock into a large skillet; add greens. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until greens are tender and stock is absorbed.
  • Add butter, cheese, and pepper to the grits, stirring well. Stir in cooked greens. Cook 1 minute or until grits and greens are thoroughly heated and the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon, and serve immediately.
