A breakfast casserole with grits is one of the best Southern comfort foods that you will ever eat in your life. Now you can enjoy grits anywhere in the country with this recipe for Homemade Southern Cheese Grits Casserole. This grits recipe only requires a few simple ingredients, and everyone in your family will enjoy this twist on a Southern classic. To make this cheese grits recipe extra creamy, combine your grits with milk on the stove. This cheesy grits casserole is even flavored with garlic, so you know that it has to be good.

NotesEither white Cheddar or regular Cheddar cheese is acceptable for this dish. Choose one or the other, or use a combination as we have here. Add more or less garlic according to your tastes. If you do not have buttermilk, use whole milk for that step.

Serves10

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup white grits (not instant)
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon very finely minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 4 ounces Cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 ounces white Cheddar cheese, grated

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 x 8-inch baking dish and set aside.

  2. In a non-stick saucepan bring the milk to a boil, then whisk in the grits, flour, salt, garlic, and pepper. Continue to cook over low heat, whisking for 8 to 10 minutes until the mixture resembles soft mashed potatoes.

  3. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the Cheddar cubes and the butter, then quickly stir in the beaten eggs. Pour into the prepared baking dish and gently pour the buttermilk over the top. Sprinkle with the white Cheddar cheese and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes until it is lightly brown at the edges and the center is firm.
