Garlic Cheese Grits

Great alone, but even better with Grillades.  It bakes like a casserole and serves like one as well.
  • 1 C. grits
  • 4 C. water
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 lb. Velveeta cheese, cut in cubes
  • ½ C. half and half
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 T. Crystal or Louisiana hot sauce
  • 2 eggs well beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cook grits in water with salt added and stir frequently
  3. When the grits start to firm up add the stick of butter
  4. When grits are cooked, add cheese then turn off heat
  5. Add garlic, hot sauce, and cream
  6. Fold in eggs
  7. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray
  8. Pour ingredients into dish
  9. Bake for 1 hour
Tips and Tricks:
  • I have not used quick grits for this recipe.  I don’t trust them, because they get hard too fast.
  • This recipe called for a roll of garlic cheese by Kraft.  I tweaked it with the fresh garlic and Velveeta and I think it works well.
