I made this for a work brunch and it was a big hit. I sprinkled some cheese on top, and was too lazy to add the garlic. The Knorr "secret ingredient" is what makes this recipe the BEST cheese grits casserole!

To Die For!! These are the best grits I've ever had. Everyone loved them. I baked them in a deep 10-inch pie plate so there was a lot of 'crust' to satisfy everyone. Next time I'm going to turn them into Southwestern grits and add jalapeƱos and cilantro. Thanks for a great recipe!

I wasn't a big fan of this, but DH really liked it. I think it would have been better if I had used a larger pan...the crusty part was the best, just didn't have enough of it.
