Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a 2-½ quart saucepan, bring milk just to a simmer over medium-high heat. Slowly whisk in grits. Reduce heat to low and cover. Continue to whisk every minute to keep from forming lumps. Cook about 5 minutes or until grits begin to thicken. Add ham, cheese, and ¼ cup green onion; stir until cheese begins to melt. Cover and remove from heat; let stand 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through. Stir again; spoon into serving dishes. Garnish with remaining 2 tablespoons green onion and serve warm.
