3 cups water
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
3/4 cup quick grits
2 teaspoons butter


Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan.

Add grits and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and simmer for 5-7 minutes until thick and creamy.

Remove from heat, stir in butter and serve.

Cook's Note: Look for quick grits at the store -- they will make serving up this dish even easier. Traditionally a Southern comfort food, grits are made from dried corn (hominy) from which the hull and germ have been removed.
