My Tia Kathy makes delicious cheese grits for all of our holiday gatherings, and I used her recipe as part of my NYE feast. They’re very rich and very good. Enjoy!
Cook 1.5 cups of regular grits in 6 cups of water. Let the water boil first, add the grits, turn to a simmer and stir regularly for about 15 minutes.
In a bowl, mix together:
1.5 sticks of butter, melted
1 lb of cheddar cheese
Tabasco to taste (I use about 1 teaspoon)
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
When the grits have cooked, pour them in to the bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix together. Pour the mixture into a rectangular Pyrex dish (careful not to overfill — they rise some). Sprinkle the top with paprika, and bake at 350 for one hour.
