Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 2 cups uncooked regular yellow grits
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 3 ears)
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Generously butter a 3-qt. baking dish; freeze 10 minutes.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, bring 3 cups water and 1 tsp. salt to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Gradually whisk in grits; return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, whisking often, 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened. Whisk in milk, and cook, stirring constantly, 3 to 4 minutes or until grits are creamy.
  3. 3. Remove from heat, and stir in corn, next 7 ingredients, and remaining 3 tsp. salt. Spread mixture in prepared dish. Place on an aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan.
  4. 4. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until puffed, firm around edges, and slightly soft in center. Remove from oven to a wire rack, and cool 5 minutes before serving.
