Cheese Grits Casserole
It's true: grits, that famous Southern dish made from ground hominy, are too bland to enjoy by themselves.
But see what happens when they are mixed with more intensely flavored ingredients,
such as ham with red-eye gravy; spicy pork sausage; or this delicious sharp Cheddar cheese casserole.

1 cup "Quick" grits
1/2 pound grated sharp Cheddar cheese
8 Tablespoons butter
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk

Cook grits according to instructions on box, salting lightly. Remove from heat.
Stir in cheese, butter, eggs, and milk. Pour into a greased casserole.

Bake 45 minutes (or until set) at 350°.
