  • Bring milk, water, and salt to a boil in a large saucepan; gradually sprinkle grits into the boiling liquid, stirring to combine. Cook until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir processed cheese, sharp Cheddar cheese, butter, and garlic powder into grits, stirring until cheese has melted. Let the mixture stand until cooled, about 15 minutes. Stir beaten eggs into grits; transfer to prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is lightly golden brown and the grits are set, about 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Any leftovers can be frozen and warmed.

Loved this recipe. Awesome comfort food. The only thing I did different was to add more garlic since we are garlic lovers. Read More

I love polenta or grits but the cheese didn't work well with the recipe. I will try it without cheese and that should be good. Read More

We have always added meat ( cooked cubed chicken crisp bacon or cubed ham ). But this recipe as it stands is great. Unfortunately there is never any leftovers. Dang! Read More

This recipe has been in my family for years. It always disappears! My grandmother always served it with roast beef fresh green beans or home canned green beans and homemade rolls. Comfort food at it's best. Read More

I've tried several Cheese Grit recipes since I've lost the one that my brother-in-law's grandma used and we all loved . . . . this is the closest I've found and I've made this several times. Since it is just me, I cut the recipe in 1/2 and sometimes it will last a couple of days for breakfast. And sometimes I've eaten it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Thanks for the Elaine! Read More

I love it but I added a lil change to mines. I added fried bacon & the grease from it. I poured the grease into the water & milk. Along with some slap your mama season salt pepper & garlic. I cut the bacon up in small pieces and added it before the eggs. It was GREAT!!! I will be making this again?????? Read More

I made this dish per the recipe except for scaling it in half. Delicious! Made a great accompaniment to breakfast for dinner tonight but would be a good side dish with chicken or beef as well. Read More
