Try Trisha Yearwood’s Garlic Grits Casserole Instead Of Potatoes

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.

Ingredient list:

  • 5 tablespoons salted butter, plus more for the dish
  • Salt
  • 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
