Autumn Tapas, Cheesy Grit Style
My husband had Cheesy Grits while at school in Atlanta and I was dying to have them at home. We looked at several recipes and winged it! We had the grits for breakfast on the weekend, YUMMY!
I re-created the leftovers into cute little appetizer tapas!
2 cups water
1/2 cup Quaker or Aunt Jemima Enriched Hominy Quick Grits, uncooked*
4 oz. Pasteurized process cheese spread, cubed
Dash of garlic powder (optional)
Bring water to a boil; slowly stir in grits.
Reduce heat; simmer 3 to 4 minutes or until thick, stirring occasionally.
Add cheese and garlic powder; continue cooking until cheese is melted, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Pour into a greased 9X9 casserole, let set up and cut into cute shapes!
**I put a very small amount of cheese on each and used my blow torch to give them some color**
