Smoked Gouda and Havarti Cheese Grits


One taste of these grits and you'll be hooked. If you're tired of potatoes or rice and would like to try something different, this dish is savory, cheesy, and super easy!

Yield: 4 - 6
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Minutes


• 1-1/2 cups Chicken Broth (1 can of Campbell's Chicken Broth is perfect)
• 1-1/2 cups Half and Half
• 1 cup Corn Grits
• 2 tablespoons of Salted Butter
• 1 cup Smoked Gouda
• 1 cup Cream Havarti
• Heavy Cream (no certain amount...use to bring grits to consistency)
• Charred Fresh Corn Kernels
• Thinly Sliced Green Onion Tops
• Salt and Pepper to taste


In a medium saucepan, bring your chicken broth and half and half to boil over medium to high heat.

Pour in grits and turn heat to between medium and low. Stir off and on for 5 minutes. Add butter. Remove from heat and add approximately 1/2 cup of the corn kernels. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Add the cheeses and stir until well incorporated.

When ready to serve, top with roasted corn kernels and thinly sliced green onion tops. Great with some hot sauce sprinkled on or a dollop of Chili Garlic Paste!
