    I LOVE GRITS! This is a great recipe and I like to serve this for breakfast with biscuits and gravy and then take a long walk or roll back into bed!

      Very nice recipe! We enjoyed the kick from the jalapeno and cayenne pepper. I only needed two servings, so I scaled down the recipe and baked in two ramekins. Perfect! Thanks for sharing! Made for Culinary Quest '14.

      John's mom sent us some grits and I hunted for a recipe, he liked the sound of this one and am I glad he chose this! I have only ever had them with butter and salt&pepper, I like them that way but this opens up a whole new dimension for them, We very much enjoyed this recipe and I want to make it again this weekend I always make a large Sunday breakfast, can't wait!

      Excellent! This was my first time trying grits, and I really enjoyed it. The jalapeno gave it a nice kick, but the cheese provided just the right flavor and kept the eggs nicely moist. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Dib's. Made for 2014 Culinary Quest game (for U.S. Southern Cooking). I'll make this again.
