I love grits, which is strange since I was raised in Wisconsin. My husband on the other hand hates them and he was raised in the south. He however loves these garlicky, cheesy grits. This is a great dish to serve with barbequed ribs or chicken

Very good recipe. The grits was very creamy with just a hint of garlic....just right to me. If you like a stronger garlic flavor, you will want to increase the amount. Being from the South, however, and having cooked grits many times, I can tell you that the grits will be less lumpy if you put them into the water before you bring it to a boil.

I know that there are Velveeta haters out there but, honestly folks, it works well in this recipe. I used the "light" version, it melted quickly, and gave these grits a mellow, cheesy taste. The garlic flavor is subtle and was just right. The grits were really runny at 25 minutes, so I baked an additional 15 minutes. I made this to serve with a dinner entree, so I didn't want grits that needed to be spooned out of the dish...that's OK for breakfast but not what I wanted for a dinner side dish. The consistency at 40 minutes was perfect: firm, but still very moist and creamy.

My family has used a recipe just like this for the several years. It has become a standard at every holiday meal. We all love it, including my preschoolers.
