Smoked Gouda Grits

You could use any melting cheese in this recipe, such as a sharp cheddar, fontina, or Gruyère—in which case, just call them "Cheesy Grits." No one has to know.
2 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup coarse-ground grits (not instant)
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
4 ounces smoked Gouda, grated
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
Bring milk, salt, and 2 1/2 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Gradually whisk in grits until smooth. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook, whisking occasionally, until creamy but still with some bite, 20–25 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in butter and cheese; season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with chives.
