Ham and Grits Pie

Ham and Grits Pie

Introduction

Adapted from a Rachel Ray 10-spot recipe, this combination sounds weird, but quickly became a favorite in my house! Marinara sauce and cheese makes everything tasty!

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1.25 quick cooking plain grits (or 4 servings)
    1.25 c. shredded colby jack cheese
    ~5 oz. deli ham, sliced into thin ribbons (I use a little over half of a 9 oz. container)
    1/2 c. chopped onions
    1 chopped roma tomato
    1.5 (1 14 oz. can) of tomato sauce
    2 tbsp. butter or spread (I use Country Crock Light)
    Cajun seasoning
    Salt & pepper

Directions

Cook grits as directed on package, adding salt and 1 tsp. cajun seasoning. After the grits are cooked, stir in 1/2 c. cheese, butter, and salt to taste.


Heat the oven to 400. Spray a 8"x8" glass baking dish or 10" pie pan with cooking spray. Spread the grits into the prepared pan.


In a large skillet, combine the ham, onions, tomato, tomato sauce, and more cajun seasoning. Simmer for 5 minutes or until the onions are soft (alternately, you can brown the onions in a little butter first before adding the other ingredients to the skillet).


Pour the tomato mixture over the grits. Top with the remaining cheese, and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned on top. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.


I like to serve with a salad. Leftovers reheat great!
Makes 4 generous servings.

  • I'm not sure what I did wrong, but this did not turn out like I thought it would. It was more like soup than pie. That being said, it still tasted good, and even my picky family members liked it. Next time I may add more spices, maybe some garlic, red pepper and dill. - 5/4/09

    I'd guess it was the grits? It's happened to me before where I've made this and didn't let the grits get thick enough - you want them thick and stiff enough to hold up to the sauce and toppings. Sorry it didn't work out for you!
