Garlic-Cheese Grits

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/garlic_cheese_grits.html

From EatingWell:  October/November 2006

Garlic-cheese grits are a typically rich Southern dish, but the truth is you don't need a half a cup of butter and a pound of cheese to make them taste good. By using a pungent blend of super-sharp cheeses we've found you can use much less cheese and still get flavor-packed results.

6 servings, about 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 1-1 1/2 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 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 cheeses and cayenne (or hot sauce); transfer to the prepared pan.
  5. Bake, uncovered, until bubbling and crusty on top, about 45 minutes.
