    Jelobeanz #2's Note:

    From EatingWell.com Here we've combined two favorite Southern side dishes — grits and greens — into one casserole that's a natural choice to serve with Easter ham. Try omitting the bacon and using vegetable broth to make it a vegetarian dish.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    about 1 ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400°F Coat an 8-inch-square baking dish with cooking spray.
    2. 2
      Place bacon (if using) in a large Dutch oven. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until crispy, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Pour off the bacon fat.
    3. 3
      Return the pot to medium-low heat; add oil, onion, and garlic and cook, stirring often, until fragrant and starting to brown in spots, 2 to 8 minutes (cooking time will be quicker if you started with bacon). Add 1 cup broth and salt; bring to a boil over high heat. Add collards (or kale); stir until wilted down to about one-third the volume and bright green, 1 to 2 minutes. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Adjust heat during cooking to maintain a simmer, and add water, 1/4 cup at a time, if the pan seems dry.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, bring 2 cups water and the remaining 1 cup broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Pour in grits in a steady stream, whisking constantly. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, whisking often, until thick, about 5 minutes. Combine 1/2 cup cheese, salsa, and egg in a small bowl. Remove the grits from the heat and quickly stir in the cheese mixture until combined.
    5. 5
      Working quickly, spread about half the grits in the prepared baking dish. Top with greens, spreading evenly. Spread the remaining grits over the greens. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese and the reserved bacon (if using).
    6. 6
      Bake the casserole until hot and bubbling, about 20 minutes. Let stand for about 10 minutes before serving.

      This sounded so good, I had to try it. It is one of the best recipes I have gotten from this site. My husband loved it and so did I.
