Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. Beat milk, egg, garlic powder, and hot pepper sauce in a bowl.
  3. Bring water and salt to a boil in a saucepan; cook and stir grits in boiling water until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat; add butter and about 1/2 of the Cheddar cheese. Stir egg mixture into grits and pour grits into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle remaining Cheddar cheese over grits.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and grits are set, about 1 hour. Allow grits to cool 20 to 30 minutes before serving. Grits should be cornbread-like.

As a Southern girl, I do love me some garlic cheese grits, just not this much garlic. Perfect otherwise. Of course, using less garlic powder or substituting real garlic is easy enough to do. I also do not like grits cooked as firm as cornbread. I checked them at 30 minutes and then cooked them just barely past the jiggly stage.

The recipe is very good. Excellent garlicky taste . Although instead if water I used chicken broth and no salt. I decreased the butter by two tablespoons and added 8 oz sharp cheddar. We love cheese but lots of packages come in 8 oz so I used what we had. We will definitely make this again and again. Yummy!!!

I absolutely loved this! The flavor is amazing, and I'll definitely make it again! My only problem is that I live at high altitude, so I need to figure out what to do to make it set correctly.
