Rich and creamy these grits make a great side dish for a Southern-style meal. I make these at my annual Kentucky Derby party.Kristin Arnett, Elkhorn, Wisconsin

I recommend making this without the nutmeg.

I didn't need to cook the grits the whole 25 minutes, just until they got thick. I also only used the cheddar cheese. This was my first time making grits, and we were very pleased with the results.
