      Wonderful, easy way to cook grits! They turned out perfectly. however, be SURE to cook them UNCOVERED. If you cover them. they will bubble over onto your turntable and make a big mess. I will be using this recipe often, as my family loves grits.

      These were great -- my husband isn't a big grits fan, but loved them -- and I also loved how simple they were to make. My only changes were that I added a little butter and some garlic and seasoning at the start, and ended up microwaving it a few extra minutes before adding cheese as it seemed a bit liquidy. However, it firmed up a lot after a few minutes, so that probably wasn't necessary! Thanks for a great recipe (and thanks, too, to Beachgirl -- I didn't use a lid :) and had no problems).

      Having BURNED my best pot making grits yesterday, I tried this microwave recipe today! I cut the recipe in half to serve myself and a little one. However, I found that after 15 minutes the grits were not as tender as I like. So, I added a little more water and a splash of milk, returned the grits to the microwave, partially covered (uncovered the first 15 minutes) for 6 minutes, power 7. I am glad to report I will not be spending all day scrubbing another pot! Tasty!!
