Cherie's notes for this recipe:
Great recipe for traditional southern cheese grits! If you double the recipe, use a 9x13 baking dish. (from a Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House recipe)

In a large saucepan bring the water to a boil. Add the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Gradually stir in the grits. Lower the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the butter and 1 cup of cheese until melted.
In a small bowl mix the eggs with the milk. Stir the mixture into the grits. Pour the grits into a greased 2-quart casserole dish.
Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
