Baked Garlic Cheese Grits

Derby Day

Adapted from a Recipe by Paula Deen

Ingredients:

6 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1.5 cups quick grits
8 ounces Sharp Cheddar, cubed plus 8 ounces Monteray Jack, cubed
1/2 cup milk

2 small jalapeno peppers, diced
4 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
8 ounces grated sharp Cheddar
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 casserole dish.

Bring the broth, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in the grits and whisk until completely combined. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the grits are thick, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the cubed Cheddar, Monteray Jack, and milk and stir until melted. Temper the eggs, then gradually stir in the eggs and butter, stirring until all are combined. Add the diced jalapeno. Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle with the grated Cheddar and bake for 50 minutes or until set.

We had this for our first Derby Day party on June 7, 2014 for the running of the Belmont Stakes. California Chrome didn't win the triple crown, but we all had fun! David and Jason thought they were really good and they don't like grits as a rule! It took longer to set than I thought it would, but they did thicken right up perfectly after they were taken out of the oven.
