Recipe Ingredients for Baked Garlic Cheese Grits

4.5 cup (8 fl oz) Water
1 cup Corn Grits, White, Regular, Quick, Enriched, Dry
0.25 tsp Salt, Table
1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
2 clove Garlic
1 cup, shredded Low Fat, Cheddar Or Colby Cheese
0.13 tsp Pepper, Red Or Cayenne

Recipe Directions for Baked Garlic Cheese Grits

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking pan with cooking spray.

  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. 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. Stir the oil and garlic into the grits along with the cheese and cayenne; transfer to the prepared pan.

  5. Bake, uncovered, until bubbling and crusty on top, about 45 minutes.
