Most grit recipes tell you to use water, to me that’s the craziest thing ever! Why add bland water when you can add vastly more flavor by using vegetable, chicken, or beef broth instead? And if you can find a good chicken or beef bone broth then do that.

How to make creamy grits with cheese

The Best Cheesy Grits Recipes

These three kinds of cheese: freshly grated medium cheddar goat cheese, extra sharp white cheddar, and cave-aged Gruyère.

Let’s talk cheeses for a minute because if you’re gonna make cheesy grits what’s the point if you’re not coming with your best recipe? And again, it’s all about adding lots of savory flavors and adding quality cheeses is a great way to do an evolving flavor profile which enhances the eating experience. Using a variety of cheeses that work well together, meaning no one cheese takes center stage, and each addition brings something dynamic to the table. I think I found the perfect three-cheese combination. For this recipe I added cave-aged Gruyère, this is both a salty and slightly sweet cheese with a nice creamy and nutty profile. Next, I grated medium cheddar goat cheese; this is a great addition because it adds a subtle tang typical of goat cheese. If you love goat cheese, you will appreciate the flavor, if not just omit the goat cheese altogether. Finally, I grated a mild sharp white cheddar, and this addition helps balance out all of the flavors of all three kinds of cheese. After the grits have cooked in broth, half and half (heavy cream), and butter, little by little add the freshly grated cheeses.
