A family favorite. I omit the red pepper and double the cheese. Reserve a half cup or so of cheese to top with for the last five minutes or so of cooking. Also, I use a nice sharp cheddar.

The texture seemed too runny in step 4, so I added an extra 1/2 c. grits. This is the same ratio in the directions on the package of quick grits. The dish did not set up as firmly as I was hoping for. Not enough cheese. Not enough salt.
