Cheese Grits

This recipe is THE best for cheese grits. It’s not TOO rich, and the chicken broth makes it! It always gets rave reviews. I’ve been making it for years and it always garners compliments.  It’s super cheesy without the heavy cream or cream cheese from some recipes.


6 cups chicken broth
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 cups regular grits
16 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup milk
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup butter
8 oz. grated white cheddar cheese


  1. Bring broth, S & P and garlic powder to a boil. Stir in grits and whisk. Reduce heat to low and simmer until thick (8-10 minutes). Add shredded cheddar and milk and stir. Slowly stir in eggs and butter. Pour into casserole dish, and sprinkle with white cheddar.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees 35-40 minutes until set.
