  • medium saucepan


  • ½ Cup stone ground yellow or white grits
  • 2 ½ Cups whole milk
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • pinch kosher salt


  • Bring the grits, 2 cups of the whole milk, 2 tbsp butter and a large pinch of kosher salt to a boil stirring occasionally so the grits do not burn.
  • Once it comes to a boil turn down to medium low heat and stir occasionally but vigorously for 20 to 30 seconds at a time. Continue to do this until thick like wet sand. It should take around 18 minutes or so.
  • Add ½ cup more milk stirring occasionally but vigorously for 10 more minutes until thick and creamy.
  • Serve and enjoy. Grits will thicken even more as they cool.
