Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks blog
I figured out that there are 228 calories, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)
I love cheese grits! I learned to love them when I lived in Panama City, Florida. The name of the restaurant across from the pier was Hearty House, and it was on Thomas Drive on the Beach. They had the best cheese grits that I have ever had before.
When I was in Kentucky in February, I ordered cheese grits, and they served me instant grits with a slice of processed American cheese atop the bowl. Instant grits……no thank you ma’am!!
These grits are the real thing if you order really good stone ground grits. Jenny Anderson found them for us, and I am so thankful because they are the best!! We ordered them from Bear Branch Milling in Ash, North Carolina. Just order them online and have them delivered to your home. Then – enjoy a little bit of Heaven.
These are the ingredients that I used to create this recipe
First, I melted the oil and butter in a pot
Prior to beginning, I chopped up the jalapeno, red
pepper, and onion. I halved the recipe.
I added in the veggies into the oil and butter.
I added in the grits
and the chicken broth and water.
I turned the heat to low and cooked them.
I had to stir them often because they really
wanted to stick to the bottom of the nonstick pan.
It's been about 45 minutes and they're lookin good!
In went the half and half for creamy goodness!!
I added in extra cheese because, gosh darn it - I am a cheese freak
Here are the two bowls I took over to the
Serpico household. I also took one to the
Mansours, and of course I ate a whole one
