I've really been on a new grits kick and I enjoyed this dish very much. I will be making this again. Next time, I will increase the bacon strips to 10 slices, as I didn't feel 8 was enough. I am also thinking about adding a little onion to this next time. I poured the puff into a 9" x 1.5" pie pan and it fit perfectly as it baked. Mine was done sooner at just past the hour mark. Nice served with maple syrup, fruit, preserves, or butter. It's a cross between a quiche and spoon cornbread! Yum, thank you for sharing!
