Baked Grits Casserole
This casserole uses quick-cooking grits. If you have time, use longer cooking stone-ground grits, which yield even more flavor. To save time, cook grits the night before, adding seasonings and cheese; cover and refrigerate. In the morning, beat the egg whites and finish assembling the casserole. Note: The casserole falls slightly as it cools. Serve with fried eggs and vegetarian sausage or bacon.
