Southern Roots Potluck

May 6, 2010

To finish off the semester in Roots of Southern Culture, we had a potluck of Southern dishes.  It was so good and a great finale to the class.  I made my mom’s garlic cheese grits… such a good decision.

Garlic Cheese Grits from the kitchen of Julie Hill

4 cups water

1 tsp salt

1 cup uncooked grits

2 cloves of garlic

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup butter

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp worchester sauce

3 eggs, slightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350 . Bring the water to a boil add salt, garlic, and grits. Return to a boil,

reduce heat, cover, and simmer, stirring occasioanlly for 15 minutes. Add cheese,

butter, pepper and worchester sauce. Stir until cheese melts. Remove from heat

and let stand 10 minutes. Stir in eggs and pour into a lightly greased 11×7 inch dish.

Bake for 1 hour or until set. Serves 8-10.

Jill made crawfish pie that was so good.  Go here for that recipe and photos.  Caralyne made Derby pie that was great.

Here is what some other people made:

YUM!  I love that class.
