"I had this at a party at a colleague's house. I've loved cheese grits for years, but these are by far the best I've ever had."

I really love this recipe. I moved to the South a few years ago and have been looking for a good recipe like the cheese grits they serve at some restaurants here. The only change I made was stirring in 2 eggs before cooking. My family just loves this recipe - great comfort food!

These were pretty good. I used two eggs as suggested (it definately needs them) but other than that, made the recipe as is. I will definately make these again but next time I think I will divide the parmesan, mixing half of it in with the cheddar cheese and using the other half to sprinkle on top. I thought the cheese on top was much too thick. Overall, a great dish! Thanks!

Interesting and yummy. These weren't runny like grits I've had before (let me freely admit now that I've only rarely had grits; I have no idea how they're "supposed to" be). I can see why the previous reviewer added eggs and I think that'd be a good addition, but it turned out fine without. I served these with breakfast foods, but I think this would also be good for dinner with pork or chicken or even on the side with chili instead of corn bread. I also think this recipe would be good with some hot peppers or hot sauce added to spice it up. Thanks for the recipe, you've convinced this yankee to make grits again!
