Ingredients

  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/4 cups uncooked quick-cooking grits*
  • 1/2 (8-ounce) block extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 (8-ounce) block Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (optional)
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten

Preparation

  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Gradually whisk in grits; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until thickened. Stir in Cheddar cheese, next 5 ingredients, and, if desired, Worcestershire sauce, stirring until cheese melts. Remove from heat, and stir in eggs.
  2. Pour grits into a lightly greased 2-quart or 11- x 8-inch baking dish.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350º for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden and set.
  4. *Stone-ground grits may be substituted. Increase liquid to 6 cups, and increase cook time to 50 minutes.
