Stove Top Grit "casserole"

Stove Top Grit "casserole" created by Parsley

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.

ingredients

directions

  • In 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.
  • Whisk 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.
  • Add cheese, stirring until it's melted in and the grits look creamy. Add onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour into serving bowls and garnish with a dollop of sour cream, green onion, more bacon -- whatever suits your fancy.
  • Enjoy!

    Started out great, whisked grits with milk 5 min as indicated. The problem began after adding egg and cooking another 5 min was WAY too long. Went ahead and added cheese as directions said, but by that time I had a sort of "gritty" paste. At the end I poured in a bit of boiling water and it loosened up, but I was never happy with it -- not really very good. It could be that I am a born-and-bred Southerner and have my own thing with grits and cheese, etc. (and SHRIMP!)

    This was super quick and easy to make and tasted great. I don't eat grits very often and don't like to eat them "plain" so this recipe was just the thing. I made this just as written, just using garlic powder in place of onion powder. I garnished with the suggested sour cream, scallions and more real bacon bits. Great for a fast breakfast, but it would make a good lunch as well. Thanx!

    These grits are just delicious! So rich and creamy - great texture - and really pretty easy to make. I didn't use any additional garnish and thought they were terrific as is. I might add a little garlic powder along with the onion powder next time. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
