I like the grits overall. I added a little less garlic powder though. I did 1 teaspoon instead of 1 1/2 teaspoons. I think that next time, I will do just a 1/2 teaspoon though. I would add 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt too. Oh, and I also used velveeta cheese instead of cheddar. Turned out well.

Very quick and easy. My only change would be to add less garlic powder next time and more salt b/c it seemed to have a strong garlic taste. Also - used full fat cheddar cheese and it was great!

My recipe, too, garnished with a pinch of cayenne or Tabasco. Excellent grits! This recipe makes 4 servings, not twelve.
