Garlic-Cheese Grits

Photo: psfreeman

Garlic-cheese grits are a typically rich Southern dish, but the truth is you don’t need a half a cup of butter and a pound of cheese to make them taste good. By using a pungent blend of super-sharp cheeses we’ve found you can use much less cheese and still get flavor-packed results.

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cup(s) water
  • 1 cup(s) grits, quick or old-fashioned (not instant)
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2 teaspoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium clove(s) garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup(s) shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup(s) grated sharp Italian cheese, such as Pecorino Romano or Parmesan
  • 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon(s) cayenne pepper, or 1 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. 2. Bring water, grits and salt to a boil in a large saucepan, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat and simmer until the grits are thick, 5 to 30 minutes, depending on the type of grits.
  3. 3. Meanwhile, combine oil and garlic in a small skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the garlic is fragrant but not browned, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  4. 4. Stir the oil and garlic into the grits along with the cheeses and cayenne (or hot sauce); transfer to the prepared pan.
  5. 5. Bake, uncovered, until bubbling and crusty on top, about 45 minutes.
