Oklahoma City Cheese Grits


Years ago when Tupper Patnode was chef and proprietor of the Classen Grill (still an OK City Roadfood favorite), he shared with us his recipe for cheese grits. They’re good for breakfast or as a side dish for supper.

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

2 tablespoons melted butter

4 cups water

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup quick grits

2 cups grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Whip together eggs, milk, and melted butter.

Bring water, garlic, and salt to a boil. Add the grits and stir constantly until very thick. Add the egg/milk mixture, stirring constantly, then stir in the cheese until it is melted and evenly mixed.

Lightly oil a baking pan about 9×12 inches. Pour the grits into the pan and bake 25-30 minutes, or 15 more minutes if you want to serve them as squares. Remove from the oven and let the grits cool 15-20 minutes before serving.
