I think this is the best cheese grits recipe out there. It could be the Parmesan cheese that makes this special. It always comes out perfect.
I used half -n- half instead of milk and added cubed ham. Very tasty. I think you can omit the egg and just enjoy the dish as soon as the grits are done and you add the cheese (and any meats). I don't see a need to bake for 30-40 minutes if you don't add the egg. I did not see where it "set" anymore than it would if you just added your ingredients. The half-n-half made it very rich so I would use a "dash" of salt. Very enjoyable and rich breakfast. It'd be a fast meal too if you omit egg and don't bake.
Creamy, cheesy deliciousness! Great basic grits recipe that may be changed up with sharper or smoother cheddar cheeses. This is my husband's favorite and mine too!
I randomly found this recipe on the internet 3-4 years ago looking for a Christmas morning breakfast and now my family requests me to make it every Christmas morning. I follow the recipe exactly for the grits and then mix in sausage and bacon before baking. We are from the south so we top it with lots of Texas Pete hot sauce before eating!
since you're from the south , I can ask you this- using milk instead of water did that make it taste rich and sweet? I love grits don't like cream of wheat and putting milk in it reminds me of cream of wheat. Thanks I realize your comment is several years old but, maybe still can help
This is coming from someone who has hated grits her whole life due to a texture issue. I'm from the south and have tried a LOT of grits! My boyfriend loves grits so I set out to make them even though I don't like them. This recipe has changed my mind! So, so good! Will be part of our weekly rotation from now on. DELICIOUS!!
I revised slightly to make this on the stove top - I added a spoon of sour cream (to a 1/3-sized recipe) while the grits were cooking, then simply stirred in the cheddar cheese, S&P, parm, and also a torn up slice of white American cheese. Let sit for a minute or two to set up a little bit. When I tasted them they were "happy dance" good!
This is the best side dish ever. My husband could not get enough!
Outstanding. I mixed in cooked, crumbled sausage prior to baking to give it a little more bulk for a brunch event, but this recipe is perfect without changing a thing. Would make a fantastic base for shrimp and grits.
great!...added 1/4 t. ground red pepper. Served with Spice-crusted shrimp/Remoulade, this site....perfect meal. Can do ahead and chill overnite. Baked some next day with bacon bits on top - excellent breakfast.
Made this dish to serve with brisket - it was absolutely delicious! My guests couldn't quit raving about it.
My daughter-in-law just made these for our family breakfast and they are most delicious, I can't wait to make them for myself and my husband !
We're fans of cheese grits, and I have tried many recipes over the years. This is now our favorite. It has just the right balance of flavors. Rich and creamy. The Parmesan adds a nice touch, too.
This is a delicious casserole that's simple to make. It's creamy with just the right amount of cheese, and baking adds a final golden touch to the top.
