My New Southern Obsession

Living in the South, you are pretty much required to love grits. When I first came to Georgia from Texas I had no idea what everyone’s obsession was with this tasteless, bland dish. That is until I went to a friend’s house and had them covered in margarine, cheese, salt and pepper. It was divine!!! Here's a great recipe!

Garlic Cheese Grits
Instructions:

Yield: 8 Servings
1 cups Grits; uncooked
3¾ cups Water
½ teaspoon Slat
1/3 cups Skim milk
3 tablespoon Tub margarine
½ teaspoon Garlic powder
4 oz Velveeta cheese; light
1 cups Sharp cheddar cheese; grated
Fat
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


Cook the grits in the salted water. Once cooked, stir in milk and cook a few more minutes. Then add the margarine, garlic, Velveeta cheese, sharp cheddar cheese and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until the margarine and cheese have melted. Put in a casserole sprayed with vegetable oil cooking spray and sprinkle with paprika. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
