    Make the grits. In a medium cast iron pan over medium-high heat, bring 4 cups of water to a boil, and add the salt. Remove from heat and gradually whisk in grits, working out any lumps. Return to heat and stir occasionally until thickened, 8-10 minutes. Stir in the cheddar cheese, cover and keep warm.
