Cheese grits are an easy-to-make, creamy, and delicious side dish. Try making this recipe with a combination of different types of cheese and pair it with chicken, shrimp, steak, or pork.
Bring the water, chicken broth, and one tablespoon of butter, salt, and garlic powder to a boil. Slowly stir in the grits, mixing well to combine. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook uncovered until smooth and creamy.
Remove from heat and stir in the remaining butter, shredded cheddar cheese, and heavy cream. Mix well.
Season with additional salt or black pepper, to taste.
