Garlic Cheese Grits

User Rating 4 Star Rating (6 Reviews)


Grits recipe with Cheddar cheese and garlic, a very popular way to prepare grits in the South.


  • 6 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups grits
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 eggs, well beaten
  • 16 ounces shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • cayenne pepper to taste


Bring water and salt to a rolling boil; gradually stir in grits with fork. Cook, stirring constantly, until all water is absorbed. Stir in butter a tablespoon at a time; stir in the beaten eggs, working quickly so eggs will not cook before thoroughly blended into the grits, then stir in the shredded cheese, garlic and a little cayenne pepper. Put into a greased 2 1/2-quart casserole. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 15 to 20 minutes.
Serves 8.

Garlic Cheese Grits-The best!, Member uncle859

I used Carolina Plantation white grits and a bit more garlic (because we like garlic). What a fantastic recipe. Served it with sauted fresh spinach with pancheta and grilled flank steak. A Great combination and a grits recipe to keep in your culinary toolbox.
