This buttery, two-cheese casserole featuring one of the South’s favorite foods is a must for holiday brunches or to serve at dinner with shrimp or ham.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring grits, chicken broth, and next 3 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes or until thickened. Stir in butter and cheeses until melted.

Step 2

Gradually stir about one-fourth of hot grits mixture into eggs; add egg mixture to remaining hot grits mixture, stirring constantly. Pour grits mixture into a lightly greased 2 1/2-qt. baking dish.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly around edges. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

This was really tasty. Brought it to work for a breakfast potluck and everyone loved it. I made it the night before, didn't bake until the next morning. I used shredded colby and monterey jack cheeses instead of the ones listed. I also sauteed 1/2 onion finely chopped in the butter. I think that really makes a difference.

Wonderful! I've been making this recipe exactly as given for special occasions over the past year or so and it's always a hit. I do often make ahead and refrigerate - but add at least another 10 minutes to cooking time when do so.

Fantastic. Just the right creamy texture for grits. I added a few slices of crispy bacon for more flavor. It is a bit time consuming for a breakfast dish, so I may experiment with mixing the night before, refrigerating, then baking in the morning. Will definitely make again.

I barely finished 1 serving, which was hard to do. Certainly won't make it again.

This is now my default cheese grits casserole recipe, however I use 8 oz. Cheddar and 6 oz. American cheese. Always well received.
