Definitely didn't add the nutmeg and it was delicious. Had it as a side for dinner and twice for breakfast. Really makes a lot

Milk adds a nice creaminess. I not a fan of the parmesan and nutmeg. I'll stick with my garlic cheese grits recipe.

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.
