In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make her popular Southern Garlic-Cheddar Cheese Grits recipe. These grits look wonderful on the dinner table, and they are sooooo flavorful! Your guests will want to kiss the cook after tasting these!
  Boiling water 4 Cup (64 tbs) (Rapidly)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Quick cooking grits 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Butter/Margarine 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Grated sharp cheddar cheese 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Eggs 2 , well beaten
  Milk 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Minced garlic 2 Teaspoon (Canned / Bottled)
  Cooking oil spray 1

Heat 4 cups of water to boiling in a pot over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon salt and 1 cup quick grits. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until grits are done (smooth and thickened). Remove from heat and add 1 stick of butter or margarine, 2 cups grated Cheddar cheese, 2 well-beaten eggs, 1/4 cup milk, and 2 teaspoons of bottled minced garlic. Stir everything together and pour into a oven-proof dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. (In the video, I baked my casserole at 425 degrees for 20 minutes, but I think 400 degrees will be better.) Remove grits casserole from the oven, let stand for 5 minutes, and serve while hot! It's delicious!!!
