Cheesy grits

My poor mom had to have several teeth pulled.  And anyone that has had that done knows how awful it is.  You can't eat much because of the stitches, so soft foods it is.  Although soup is yummy, and so are mashed potatoes they get old really quick.  So thinking of other foods that are easy on the mouth but still so good. 
That's where these grits come in.  I love cheese grits, bur am not a fan of having them out anywhere.  It seems they usually taste like nothing, which is not a good thing.  So I came up with this way after several failed attempts, of trying to come up with big flavor, but still delicious. 
 I use quick cooking grits so these are done within 5 minutes from start to finish.. easy peasy....
I sometimes top these with a poached egg, and some frizzled ham, or fried bacon bits..soo delicious...But they are just as good as it...

So make these today for your family.  Enjoy..

Cheesy Grits

3 1/3 cups water
1 cup quick cooking grits
1 chicken buillon cube
Seasonings of your choice ** ( I used 1/4 tsp each, seasoned salt, garlic & onion powder & a couple of grinds of fresh black pepper and a pinch of kosher salt)
2 T butter
1/3 cup co-jack cheese
2-3 T grated parmesan cheese

In pan add water, buillon cube, & seasonings.  Bring to a full boil.  Add grits stirring and cooking often until thickened and cooked about 2-4 minutes.  Turn off heat & add butter and cheese and stir well.  Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Serve with additional cheese if desired..  Enjoy
