  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 cup corn grits not instant or quick cook
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup or more, if you want shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Ranch dressing mix the dry stuff, not the dressing in a bottle!


  • Bring broth and salt to a boil in a medium pan over high heat.
  • Slowly stir in the grits.
  • Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes, stirring often. To prevent the grits from splattering you can place a lid over the top of the pan but do not cover it completely.
  • Add the butter and stir to melt.
  • Add the cheese and Ranch dressing mix and stir until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve.
