Southern Grits Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by BeachGirl

My family's favorite with seafood, especially with shrimp or crabcakes. It's great for brunch or a casual dinner party! Growing up, I never had grits, but I've grown to love them. :) Prep time does not include the 20 minutes needed to cook the grits.
