Southern style grits are usually breakfast fare. Leave it to Paula to make it a perfect companion dish for almost any meat main course!
These grits are excellent. Cheesy and full of flavor. If you’ve had grits before and just thought meh, you must try this recipe.
I love to serve it along side Cajun Shrimp! Makes a great dinner.
Paula Deen’s Baked Garlic Cheese Grits
6 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups regular grits
16 ounces cheddar cheese, cubed
1⁄2 cup milk
4 large eggs, beaten
1⁄2 cup unsalted butter
8 ounces grated sharp white cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a 4-quart casserole dish.
Bring the broth, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in the grits and whisk until completely combined. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the grits are thick, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Add the cubed Cheddar and milk and stir. Gradually stir in the eggs and butter, stirring until all are combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle with the white Cheddar and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until set.
