Cheese and Jalapeno Grits Casserole

Recipe by Diana Adcock

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.
