print recipe

4 cups whole milk
1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup butter
1 cup regular grits (NO INSTANT)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 cup chopped sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.

In a heatproof casserole on the stove top, bring the milk just to a boil and add 1/2 cup butter.  Add the grits to the casserole, stirring and continuing to cook until it has the consistency of cereal.

Remove the casserole from the stove and, using an electric mixer, add the remaining butter and salt and pepper.  Return to stove top at medium heat.

Stir in the cheddar cheese until it melts.  Sprinkle Parmesan on top.  Bake 1 hour, until crusty on top.
