[recipe] Really Quick Polenta / Grits

[ Ingredients ]
- Quick Grits - Color is white instead of the polenta yellow, but saves a ton of time and tastes the same.
- Liquid - Half chicken stock and half skim milk works well.
- Mix - Like omelette can mix in anything. Sausage, bacon, corn, peas

[ Notes ]
- 1/2 cup of dry grits makes healthy side-portion for three adults
- Flexible, easy, and quick to make in small or large quantity

[ Direction ]
- Liquid to Grits ratio: 4 to 1
- Bring liquid to boil
- Salt liquid appropriately depending on how much salt is already in liquid
- Lower to simmer, then slowly stir in quick grit
- Stir for 5 minutes until grit absorbs the liquid
- Add more liquid / cream as needed to get to desired consistency.
