4 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick-cooking grits, uncooked
1 cup chopped reduced-fat, low-salt ham
3 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarine
1 teaspoon low-sodium Worcestershire sauce
1 cup egg substitute
Vegetable cooking spray
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese


Combine 4 cups water and salt in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir in grits; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until grits are thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Add ham, margarine, and Worcestershire sauce; stir until margarine melts. Gradually add egg substitute, stirring well.

Spoon grits mixture into an 11- x 7- x 1 1/2-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5 additional minutes or until cheese melts. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
