Ingredients

  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup uncooked quick-cooking grits
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  2. Stir in egg and next 3 ingredients. Pour into a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.

  3. Bake, covered, at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until mixture is set. Serve immediately.
