Cinnamon Grits

Cinnamon Grits

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups low-fat or nonfat milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coarse ground cornmeal
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
In large saucepan over high hear, bring the water, milk and salt to a boil. Slowly stir in the grits. When the mixture starts to boil again, immediately reduce the heat to low and cover the pan.

Simmer for about 25 minutes - stirring every 5 to 10 minutes.

Once desired consistency is reached, stir in the honey, butter and cinnamon.

Serve warm.

This is my version of some grits I got at a small restaurant in southern Georgia. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the restaurant. But I do remember the taste of those grits and this is pretty close. It goes great as a side with waffles or pancakes.

You can also turn this recipe into Cinnamon Apple Grits simply by adding 1 small apple (peeled, cored and diced) in with final ingredients. Enjoy!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank spitz123 for this recipe.

We make something like this except we use grits where you just add water. Replace the honey with sugar and add just a bit more butter at the very end. It's delicious.
