I, like reviewer Joni, made Garlic Cheese Grits for years using the Kraft Garlic Cheese Roll. Kraft discontinued making the garlic cheese roll and I went into mourning. This recipe is very similar, very good. The only changes I made were using two eggs instead of one, and using 1/4 tsp. garlic powder instead of the chopped garlic.
Hint 1: To make smooth grits, as opposed to lumpy grits, when the water comes to a boil, slowly add grits while continuously stirring with a whisk.
don;t forget to add the salt. Whisk until grits come to a boil, then turn temp to low until grits are thickened and cooked, stirring frequently. I place a lid loosely over the grits, because when the grits start to thicken the mixture can "pop up" and burn your arm.
Hint 2: It is important to temper the egg(s) before adding to the hot grits, or there will be scrambled egg pieces in the grits. To temper egg(s), whisk egg(s) in a small bowl thoroughly. Pour some of the grit mixture, about 1/2 cup, into another small bowl or measuring cup. While whisking eggs, slowly pour the grit mixture until all is incorporated. Then, add this mixture to the grits.
Lastly, I do prefer the processed cheese product for this recipe. (I know.)
