Rhea's Spicy Cheese Grits

Spicy Cheese Grits

Hi, I'm Rhea. Cheese Grits are new to me in the last several years, since meeting my now husband. My father-in-law has made this dish for my husband's family since he was a boy. Now that we're married we tradeoff for the holidays. No matter where we are on Thanksgiving it makes my husband feel at home if we have cheese grits. So, I've grown to love and cherish this dish as a family tradition that will be passed on to our kids (who love it)!

  • 1.5 cups of quick grits
  • 6 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1 tbs of seasoned salt
  • 1.5 tsp garlic salt
  • 12 shots of Louisiana hot sauce
  • (1/4 cup) 1 lb. of Velveta cubed

Add in butter, season salt, garlic salt, hot sauce, and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted. Pour into 9X13 pan. Bake for 1 hour.
