"Grits ain't groceries." -Titus Turner, R&B Singer

The refrigerator light goes on...

Yum... polenta is grits and grits is polenta.


Romano Grits

Servings: 2 | Serving size: about 1/2 cup cooked grits

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

This recipe can be multiplied by 2, 3, 4.

The leftovers can be cut into 2 inch squares, seared & served as polenta cakes.

2 cups water
1/2 cups coarse ground yellow grits
1/4 tsp salt
1 ounces Pecorino-Romano cheese (grated)

Place the water in a medium sauce pan over high heat.

When the water boils reduce the heat to medium-high and slowly add the grits. Stir continuously while adding the grits.

Add the salt and stir.

Reduce the heat to medium and cook the grits for 12 minutes stirring to keep the grits from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Add the cheese and stir until well blended.
