Cheese grits have a creamy, luscious texture with a mild and pleasant flavor. In the recipe, it is commonly used cheddar cheese, but you can choose another one to your taste: parmesan, cottage cheese, or even gorgonzola.

This porridge can be served as a side dish with salads and meat or as an independent dish. You can always experiment with seasonings and filling.
