Grits Casserole with Mushrooms, Prosciutto, and Provolone

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke

Use yellow grits for the best presentation; white grits may look gray under the mushroom topping. Make-ahead tip: Cook the grits, spoon into the baking dish, and refrigerate overnight. Let the baking dish stand at room temperature while you prepare the mushroom topping; top the grits, and bake as directed.
