Ingredients

  • 6

    cups water

  • 2 1/4

    teaspoons salt, divided

  • 2

    cups yellow grits not quick or instant

  • 1

    stick unsalted butter

  • 1/2

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped garlic

  • 2

    cups cheddar cheese, coarsely grated

  • 3

    large eggs

  • 1

    cup whole milk

Directions

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Bring water and 3/4 teaspoon salt to a boil in a 4-quart heavy pot. Add grits in a slow stream, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and gently simmer, stirring frequently to avoid sticking, until very thick, about 30 minutes. Use a long-handled spoon to avoid bubbling and popping hot grits. Add butter, remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, pepper, garlic, and cheese, stirring until butter and cheese are melted. Lightly beat eggs and milk in a small bowl, then stir into grits until combined. Pour into an ungreased 8-inch square baking dish that is at least 2-inches deep, and bake until set and lightly browned, about 1 hour. Serve immediately.
