Granny Clo's Cheese Grits

Kim Mangus


This was my Grandmothers recipe and we did not have a Thanksgiving Dinner or Christmas Dinner without Cheese grits on the table. Creamy and good. I bring this to potlucks (as a side dish) and get requests for this recipe frequently. I have adjusted this recipe to be prepared in the crock pot since I have only one oven and like this hot. Yummy!

How to Make Granny Clo's Cheese Grits


  1. In the boiling water add grits and salt
  2. add cheese and butter. Cook till all melted
  3. Add eggs but carefully. I take about a cup of hot grits and add the eggs to warm up the eggs so they do not quick cook in hot grit mixture.
  4. Pour eggs/grits mixture back to pan.
  5. Add 3-5 shakes of Tabasco mix and pour into crock pot or casserole dish shake paprika on top.
  6. . Oven- cook @ 350 for an hour or till set. Crock pot- cook on low for 3-4hours till set.
