Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 2 cups
- water, boiling
- stick butter or margerine
- small-medium clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup
- quick cooking grits
- large handfulls cheddar cheese
1bring the 2 cups water to a rolling boil in a saucepan
2add 1/2 cup of quick cooking (not instant) grits, reduce fire to medium heat and cook while stirring to keep from forming lumps and sticking to pot( I use a wire whisk to stir it). It shouldn't be completely cooked, because the microwave will finish cooking it
3remove grits from fire and add the egg, whisking to beat it into grits, 1/2 stick margarine,minced garlic clove, and cheddar cheese (or fiesta blend cheese).
4transfer mixture to a buttered microwave-safe casserole dish, and place in microwave, cover dish, and finish cooking; between 1-3 minutes,depending on desired thickness, stirring halfway.
