Stirring a big pot of grits feels exactly like the mash in brewing. So it only made sense to us to combine the two with beer spiked grits. The key to super creamy grits is cooking them low and slow and adding liquid throughout, almost like a risotto. Then stirring a good helping of cheddar and heavy cream to finish them off.
We add a nice spicy kick to break up the richness by swapping Jalapeño Saison for half of our boiling liquid and adding a couple fresh chopped jalapeños at the end. We love topping these creamy cheese grits with some spicy shrimp and andouille - or simply with a fried egg. And of course with a Jalapeño Saison to wash them all down.
