1 serving, about 1 cup
Sweet maple syrup turns grits in a northerly direction. Milk adds creaminess and gives this satisfying breakfast staying power.
1 cup low-fat milk, or water
2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup quick-cooking grits, (see Note)
2 tablespoons raisins, dried cranberries or chopped dried fruit
Bring milk (or water), syrup and salt to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat. Slowly whisk in grits, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Let stand for 1 minute. Serve sprinkled with dried fruit.
Tips & Notes
Note: Look for quick grits near oatmeal and other hot cereals or near cornmeal in the baking aisle.
