Ingredients

  • Butter, for ramekins
  • 1 cup old-fashioned grits
  • cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • Chives, chopped (optional)
  • Chef notes

    Carson grew up eating cheesy grits that his mom prepared with their proper Southern breakfasts, and preparing them in individual ramekins is a fun twist on a traditional classic.

    Technique tip: Buttering the ramekins will prevent the grits from sticking.

    Swap option: You can try different cheeses, like a Monterey Jack or a Pepper Jack for some spice.

    Preparation

    1.

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly butter bottom and sides of ramekins.

    2.

    Prepare grits according to package instructions, then whisk in the cheese until melted. Remove from heat, and season to taste with a generous amount of salt and pepper.

    3.

    In a small bowl, whisk together milk and eggs. Pour egg mixture into grits and stir to combine.

    4.

    Divide evenly among six 6-ounce ramekins. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until set in the center. Top with chopped chives if using.
