For a decadent alternative to mashed potatoes, try Trisha Yearwood’s Garlic Grits Casserole. It’s a recipe that goes perfectly with Christmas ham.
When it comes to Christmas dinner, there’s no need to over-complicate things. Just ask celebrated country singer and home cooking expert, Trisha Yearwood. Her must-make holiday menu is a simple main with 2 sides, but she makes sure that each of those dishes is the most delicious that it can be.
One of her go-to dishes is this creamy, flavorful and rich grits casserole, which perfectly complements her mother’s glazed ham, roasted carrots, and a stunning red velvet cake.
If you are looking for something as comforting as potatoes, but just a little different, this is the dish for you.
Please note, if you are a veteran of grits, the liquid to grits ratio might seem a little off to you. Make sure to read the comments for suggestions on how to make these a little thicker. One reader suggests 4 cups of water and 1/4 cup milk.
Trisha’s Garlic Grits Casserole is made especially delicious with the addition of creamy, herbed cheese.
- 5 tablespoons salted butter, plus more for the dish
- 1 cup instant grits
- 10 ounces herb-and-garlic cheese (such as Boursin)
- 2 medium eggs
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1 cup crushed cornflakes
