This is a family recipe from Rachel, my MIL. It is similar, but not identical, to a few others posted. It has a mellow, smooth flavor and texture. It is good warmed up as leftovers, too, but we rarely have those! I use a mixture of regular cheese and reduced fat cheese,egg substitute, and skim milk when I make it.

Directions

  1. Bring the 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the grits and cook according to package directions.
  2. When the grits are done, add margarine, cheese, eggs, and milk to the pot. Stirring constantly, cook over low heat until smooth.
  3. Spray a 9 X 13 baking dish with no-stick spray and pour in the grits mixture.
  4. Bake 50 - 60 minutes at 325 to 350 degrees, until lightly brown on top. Watch the casserole carefully while it is baking to be sure it does not get too brown.
  5. Let stand for a few minutes before serving.

Delicious! and easy to prepare. The real beauty is that you can add a little more or less of any ingredient and it still turns out beautifully. Perfect with a nice western omelet and toast.

Great recipe. I used 4 cups of chicken stock instead of the water. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly.
