Every summer we use to have a fish fry at my DH's grandparents. I was always asked to bring the grits and never went home with leftovers.

I like regular old grits but these are my new favorite way to have them! I love the fact that you can make them ahead and pop them in the oven to bake while preparing the rest of the meal - especially handy for brunch get-togethers. Excellent recipe!

I am sure that for people that love grits, this was an amazing recipe. I am going to try them again, and bake them a little longer than the recipe calls for. They were very cheesy, which I did really like.
