Garlic Cheese Grits - TSLC
Southerners love grits!  We like them any way you fix them. Southerners can eat grits three meals a day! These Garlic Cheese Grits are wonderful and my family request them every Thanksgiving and Christmas. 
1 1/2 cups uncooked instant grits or regular grits
1 stick butter or margarine
12 oz. velveeta cheese or cheddar cheese (You can use just about any kind of cheese you like)
1 tablespoon garlic powder (can use less if you are not a fan of garlic)
3 eggs
1 cup milk
small cheese crackers

Cook 1 1/2 cups instant or regular grits according to package directions. Remove from stove, add one stick butter or margarine and the garlic powder. Cut cheese into chunks and add to grits. Beat 3 eggs and 1 cup milk together and add to grits and cheese. Spray casserole dish and add mixture. Top with crushed cheese crackers. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until knife comes out clean when inserted.

Try this tasty casserole for breakfast or as a side dish for any holiday meal or just anytime!  Enjoy!
