Quick Cook White Cheddar Grits


By Chef Matt Moore

Nothing is more Southern and comforting than a bowl of creamy grits. Instead of butter, I’ve added in some good fat by using extra-virgin olive oil. The sharp white cheddar cheese adds a smooth consistency and nutty, rich flavor.


  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup quick cook grits

  • 3 cups water

  • 1 tsp. kosher salt

  • ½ tsp. fresh cracked pepper

  • 1 cup grated sharp white cheddar cheese
  1. Combine the first 5 ingredients into a stockpot and bring to a slow boil over medium-high heat – stirring to ensure no lumps are formed.
  2. When mixture reaches a boil, cover and reduce heat to low; simmer for 7-8 minutes.
  3. Finish by adding cheese, stir until combined, and serve.
