Southern Charm


If you are from the South then you have had grits before and you know how good they are! If you have never had the opportunity to eat grits then get on the ball people!  Below is a Paula Deen recipe my mom made a while back and it was awesome.  This casserole is great for weekend guests or for a holiday crowd.  Enjoy!


Baked Garlic Cheese Grits

*recipe can be found at 

  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 cups regular grits
  • 16 oz Cheddar, cubed
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 8 oz grated sharp white Cheddar



Preheat the oven to 350°.  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.
