- 2 cups of your choice: whole milk or Half and Half
- 2 cups refreshing water
- 1/2 teaspoon savory salt
- 1 cup speed-cooking grits
- 1 cup pimento cheese (either homemade for that extra touch or convenient store-bought)

- Optional: 1 teaspoon of fragrant chopped green onion for a pop of color and flavor
- In a stockpot, blend together milk and water, bringing the mix to a lively boil.

- As a finishing touch, blend in the pimento cheese and pepper, stirring to perfection.
- Serve the warm concoction in your chosen dish, optionally adorned with green onions. If you find yourself with leftovers (a rarity, indeed), seal them in a container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
