Baked Cheese Grits

The other night we had steak, green beans, cheese grits, and garlic bread. It was sort of the best dinner ever.

What’s your favorite meal?

It includes cheese grits, right?

I know grits are more of a southern dish, like most delicious things, but you can eat these no matter what part of the country you live in. I pinky promise.

I’m not a huge fan of the breakfasty grits, but cover them in cheese and add a little garlic? Oh, yes. I’ll eat the entire dish.
