Sweet Potato Grits & Goat Cheese Grits
1 1/2 C water
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C quick cooking grits
1 C mashed sweet potatoes*
~2 oz garlic and herb goat cheese
Bring water, butter, and salt to a boil. Add grits. Cover, turn heat to med-low, and cook for 5-6 minutes**.
Uncover and stir. Continue cooking for another 4-5 minutes, stir frequently. (If they start to get too stiff, add 1 Tbsp water at a time.)
Add sweet potatoes and goat cheese. Keep stirring and cook another 3-4 minutes. When the goat cheese is fully incorporated, they should be done.
*Boil or bake one smallish sweet potato until it is very tender. Mash it up (no skin) with a little bit of salt and pepper.
**More often than not, I have issues with my grits boiling over. To prevent this, use one pot size larger than you think you need. Ex: For this amount of grits, I use the 2 qt instead of the 1 qt pot.
