Easy Cheese Grits for Fish & Grits

This is a healthy interpretation of a Southern classic, fish and grits that I did for TheKitchenHotline.com. I’ll post the healthy fried fish (pictured) under breakfast/brunches.

Quick Notes
The evaporated milk will make these some of the creamiest grits you’ve ever had without adding fat.

Variations
Replace the cheese in the recipe with more pungent cheeses like pecorino romano or smoked cheddar.

Instructions

  1. 1In a saucepan add grits to boiling water. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the evaporated milk. Bring to a simmer, cover, cook 13 minutes.
  2. 2Add the cheese and season. Continue cooking until cheese has melted and grits are tender.
