Grilled Garlic Cheese Grits

Grits are a food of American Indian origin common in the Southern United States and mainly eaten at breakfast.

It’s a great alternative to a baked potato when served with grilled steak or chicken.

Enjoy it!


1 cup uncooked grits
4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 clove garlic, minced
4 cups water
1 teaspoon salt


1. In a medium sauce pan, bring the water to a boil.
2. Slowly add the grits and salt, stirring constantly.
3. Reduce the heat; simmer, uncovered, for about 40-45 minutes (or until thickened), stirring occasionally.
4. Add the garlic and cheese; stir until the cheese is melted.
5. Spray a 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; cover and refrigerate for about 2 – 2 1/2 hours (or until firm).
