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


  • 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.
