    Prepare Ingredients and Form Meatballs

    Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a small pot. Trim green beans and cut into 1" pieces. In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, half the garlic salt (reserve remaining for grits), and a pinch of pepper. Form mixture into 10 ping pong ball-sized meatballs.

    Cook the Meatballs

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add meatballs and green beans to hot pan and cover. Stir occasionally until browned all over and meatballs reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 12-14 minutes. Stir in BBQ sauce and cook until warmed through, 1 minute. While meatballs cook, make grits.

  • 3

    Make the Grits

    Once water is boiling, stir in grits. Reduce heat to low and stir constantly until grits are smooth, 3-4 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in cheese, butter, remaining garlic salt, and a pinch of pepper. If grits stiffen, return to medium heat and stir in water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
