Baked Garlic Cheese Grits

Grits are a southern favorite and can be prepared in so many different and delicious ways. If you have never tried grits, this recipe is a great to start with as long as you love garlic and cheese! This can be served for breakfast with eggs along side or as a sidedish for lunch or dinner.

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and measure out one cup of quick cooking grits.

Bring 3 cups of chicken or beef stock to a boil and whisk in the grits, stir to get any lumps out. Add a pinch 1/2 tsp of garlic salt,1/2 tsp of pepper, and a pinch of Cayenne Pepper. Turn the heat down to low and simmer for about 8 minutes.

Stir in 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup of milk, and two eggs (beaten),stir untill cheese is melted and mixture is thick and creamy.

Pour into a greased casserole dish and top with Italian Style Breadcrumbs or more cheddar cheese for a cheesy crust. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes or untill edges and bottom are golden brown.

You can serve topped with sour cream and salsa on top for a mexican twist too, either way you will find this dish to be extremely delicious and comforting.
