How to Make It
Heat water and salt to a boil in a 4- to 6-quart pot over medium-high heat. Slowly add grits, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; stir in garlic. Cover and simmer 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove grits from heat; stir in cooked sausage and cheese. Serve hot; garnish with paprika, if desired.
