Bring the water, butter and salt to a boil in a small saucepan.
Add the grits to the boiling water using a whisk.
Cover the pot, lower the heat to a simmer and cook the grits according to the package directions.
When the grits are done, stir in the black pepper and garlic powder.
Add the cheese and stir until blended.
To store leftovers, keep them tightly covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. To reheat, place the grits in the microwave on 50% power and stir every 30 seconds. Or add a splash of water and reheat over low heat in a small saucepan stirring frequently to prevent sticking.
