Creamy Mascarpone Herb Grits

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy


  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2 1/2 cups plus more if necessary vegetable stock
  • 2 cloves finely chopped garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups stone ground grits
  • salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary


In a 5-quart pot, combine the milk, stock, and garlic. Generously season the mixture with salt. Pour the grits into the cold liquid and bring the mixture to a boil, whisking constantly. Immediately reduce the heat to a simmer and continue to stir until the grits are soft and creamy, at least 20 minutes. If necessary, add more stock to continue cooking the grits. Stir in the butter, mascarpone, and herbs.
