Baked Garlic Cheese Grits is  my recipe  of the day.

This is a traditional southern grits casserole made with garlic and cheese, then baked. It is pretty much a staple for any good country breakfast.
Often grits are made plain to be served sweet or not. Tis grits recipes bakes with  cheese so tons  of flavor  is built right in.
I like  grits alongside a country breakfast with meat, eggs, biscuits, gravy and grits.
Plus coffee is pretty much mandatory.

  1. Very easy and tasty! I’d like to try this with a dollop of roasted garlic instead of garlic powder. But delicious as posted. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC game on
