In a 2 1/2- quart saucepan, bring milk just to a simmer over medium-high heat.

Slowly whisk in grits. Reduce heat to low and cover. Continue to whisk every minute to keep from forming lumps.

Cook about 5 minutes or until grits begin to thicken.

Add ham, cheese, and 1/4 cup cup green onion; stir until cheese begins to melt.

Cover and remove from heat; let stand 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through.

Stir again; spoon into serving dishes. Garnish with remaining 2 tablespoons green onion and serve warm.
