Quick, Soft, Sexy Grits

  • FAST

This silky and rich version of the dish that Southerners eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner easily lives up to Jan Birnbaum's colorful name for it.

  1. 6 cups chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth
  2. 2 cups heavy cream
  3. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  4. 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  5. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 2 cups quick grits
  7. Tabasco
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the stock, cream, butter and garlic. Add 2 teaspoons of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper and bring to a boil. Slowly whisk in the grits and cook over low heat, whisking often, until thick and completely smooth, about 10 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and Tabasco and serve.
