The first time I made this recipe, I cooked the entire thing in the microwave, but I later realized that if I pre-cooked the grits in a saucepan over medium heat, I could finish it up in the microwave in 2 minutes. Also, the original recipe called for cheddar cheese, but I sometimes use fiesta blend cheese and it is adds a totally unique flavor

How to Make Karen's fast and easy cheese grits


  1. bring the 2 cups water to a rolling boil in a saucepan
  2. add 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
  3. remove 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).
  4. transfer 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.
