Cherie's Story

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)

Ingredients

4 c
water
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
pepper
1 c
quick cooking grits
2 Tbsp
butter
1 1/2 c
shredded cheddar cheese, divided
4
eggs, beaten
1/2 c
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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.
2
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the butter and 1 cup of cheese until melted.
3
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.
4
Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

I'm going to make this dish, but I am going to use fresh garlic. Wish me luck, as I don't know how much fresh garlic is equivalent to the garlic powder.

Lynda W, share your recipe with us. The one I loved was more like a full meal rather than a side, but willing to try any of them.
