Serve & Store

Leftover grits can be cooled and stored in the refrigerator for a few days. They will cool into a solid block that can be sliced and pan-fried for a new (and delicious) breakfast experience.


Serves: 4 to 6


1 1/2 cups grits

2 cups low sodium chicken stock

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

6 ounces Beecher’s Smoked Flagship cheese


1. In a large pot, bring stock and 2 1/2 cups of water to boil over high heat. Whisk in the grits and salt and return to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and stir constantly until thickened, about 5 minutes.

2. Remove the grits from the heat and whisk in the pepper, butter, and cheese. Serve immediately.
