I am from Utah and did not grow up with grits and didn't like what I had tried. My husband is from Georgia and had grits everyday and loves them. So, one day when I was watching the Food Network, I saw Paula Deen making these Baked Garlic Cheese Grits, and I thought they looked pretty good. I made them and we both loved them. That was years before we moved to Georgia from Utah.

Now I am in the South, I have had native Georgians ask me to make these grits. I just made them for a Father's Day breakfast and lots of people mentioned how good they are.

I hope y'all enjoy them.

How to Make Baked Garlic Cheese Grits

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 4-quart casserole dish (13x9-inch baking dish)
