    I made this for a work brunch and it was a big hit. I sprinkled some cheese on top, and was too lazy to add the garlic. The Knorr "secret ingredient" is what makes this recipe the BEST cheese grits casserole!

    To Die For!! These are the best grits I've ever had. Everyone loved them. I baked them in a deep 10-inch pie plate so there was a lot of 'crust' to satisfy everyone. Next time I'm going to turn them into Southwestern grits and add jalapeños and cilantro. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I wasn't a big fan of this, but DH really liked it. I think it would have been better if I had used a larger pan...the crusty part was the best, just didn't have enough of it.

    I was a little uneasy about serving this to a large group since there does not seem to be any middle ground on grits: people love them or they hate them. I personally love them, being a Southerner mistakenly born in a Northerner's body, and the recipe sounded great, so I gave it a shot. As the 5 stars would indicate, I was not disappointed! The flavor was wonderful, they baked up to a nice, light(for grits) texture, and they looked great at the table. Some of the guests were actually surprised to find out that it was made from grits! This will definitely become a regular dish at our house. Thanks, NurseDi for another great one.

    This used to be from Dallas grit lover always buys a hefty supply of grits to bring back to Iceland when we visit the U.S. Yesterday I shared their wonder & your recipe as a side dish to a NY Eve brunch DH & I hosted for 2 of his fishing buddies. I made a full recipe so we could eat leftovers for NY Day breakfast, but there were none - not a single grit! :-) This is a very tasty change of pace from the std & always good garlic cheese grits & will be repeated. Thx for sharing yet another keeper w/us.
