1/2 Photos of Stove Top Grit "casserole"
Queen Roachie's Note:
I made this up this morning to dress up quick cooking grits... I double the cook time to make them creamy, and added eggs, bacon bits, and shredded cheese while cooking. It turned out great! It's pretty flexible, I think, and you could use minced sauteed onion for a different flavor, sliced bacon fried and crumbled, different cheeses, and garnish with what you like. If I'd had them, I would have garnished with green onions as well.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 473.18 ml skim milk (can use half water)
- 118.29 ml quick-cooking grits
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 118.29 ml shredded cheese (used colby jack)
- 14.79-29.58 ml bacon bits (the real ones)
- 2.46 ml onion powder
- 1.23-2.46 ml salt (to taste)
- 1.23 ml fresh ground pepper
- sour cream (for garnish)
- green onions (for garnish) or chives (for garnish)
- 1In a medium saucepan, slowly bring the milk just to a boil over medium heat. Whisk in the grits and reduce heat to medium low, whisking frequently to prevent lumps from forming, and simmer about 5 minutes.
- 2Whisk in beaten eggs, one at a time, stirring quickly to keep the eggs from forming lumps. Stir in bacon bits (or crumbled bacon, yum!) and cook 5 more minutes, stirring frequently.
- 3Add cheese, stirring until it's melted in and the grits look creamy. Add onion powder, salt, and pepper.
- 4Pour into serving bowls and garnish with a dollop of sour cream, green onion, more bacon -- whatever suits your fancy.
