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

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 4-quart casserole dish (13x9-inch baking dish)
  2. Bring the broth, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in the grits and whisk until completely combined. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the grits are thick, about 8-10 minutes. Add the cubed cheese and milk, and stir.
  3. Temper the eggs by adding a 1/2 cup of the grits to the eggs and whisk. Gradually stir in the eggs and butter to the pot of grits, stirring until all are combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle with the white Cheddar and bake for 35-40 minutes or until set.
