Old Fashioned Garlic Cheese Grits
  • 7 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups grits
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoons Frank's hot sauce
  • 4 cups (16 ounces) Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  1. Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the salt and slowly whisk in the grits. Be sure and whisk constantly for about a minute so there are no lumps. Reduce heat and simmer until well done, about 25 minutes. If you are using instant grits it won't take as long, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in butter, milk, garlic, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Add the cheese a handful at a time and mix until blended. In a small bowl, crack the eggs and beat well. Take the whisk and add a small amount of the hot grit mixture to the bowl with the eggs and whisk. Pour the eggs a little at a time back into the saucepan with the grits and whisk until blended. Work quickly so you don't end up with pieces of scrambled eggs in your grits!
  3. Pour into a greased 9 X 13 inch dish and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. If the top is browning too quickly, cover loosely with foil.
