Cheese Grits


3-3/4 cups water
1 large egg
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup quick cooking grits
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup milk


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a 2 quart sauce bring some water to a boil. Mix the dry ingredients together in a small bowl. Stirs the grit into the boiling water and add the garlic. Stir constantly while cooking for about five minutes or until it has thickened and is bubbly. Cover and continue to cook over a very low head for an additional 3-5 minutes.

Grease a 1-1/2 quart baking dish lightly.

Beat the milk and egg together in a small bowl. Fold this mixture and ½ cup of cheese into the grits. Pour the grits into the baking dish and top with cheese. Bake this dish in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the cheese is browned and started to bubble.
