The sharper the cheese, the better these grits taste. Though this recipe calls for baking the grits in a casserole-style baking dish, you may also omit Step 5 and serve them right from the pot in steaming spoonfuls.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 4, cover and refrigerate until ready to bake.
4 1/2 cups  water
1 cup  grits, quick or old-fashioned (not instant)
1/4 teaspoon  salt
2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil
2   medium cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup  shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup  grated sharp Italian cheese, such as Pecorino Romano or Parmesan
1/8-1/4 teaspoon  cayenne pepper or 1 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste
Garlic-Cheese Grits Recipe at
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking dish with cooking spray.

Bring water, grits and salt to a boil in a large saucepan, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat and simmer until the grits are thick, 5 to 30 minutes, depending on the type of grits.

Meanwhile, combine oil and garlic in a small skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the garlic is fragrant but not browned, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

Stir the oil and garlic into the grits along with the cheeses and cayenne (or hot sauce); transfer to the prepared baking dish.

Bake, uncovered, until bubbling and crusty on top, about 45 minutes.
