Tomato Grits

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup quick cooking grits
  • 1/2 cup butter, and 1 tablespoon
  • 1/3 green onions, diced
  • 1 (6 oz) garlic cheese roll
  • 2 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 (10 oz) can diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 oz processed cheddar cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

 

In a saucepan, bring the water and milk to a boil. Add the salt and slowly add the grits and return to a boil, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Reduce the heat, cover, and cook for 3 minutes. While stirring the grits add the butter and stir until butter is melted. Cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the grits are thick and creamy. Remove from heat and set aside.

 

Using a skillet, saute the onions in the remaining tablespoon of butter for 1 minute. Add the garlic cheese, 1/2 cup cheddar, and onions to grits and stir until the cheese is melted. Add the tomatoes and mix well. Stir in the beaten eggs. Pour the grits into a greased 8x11x2-inch casserole and bake for 40 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the casserole for the last 5 minutes of cooking time.
