Bacon and Grits Casserole

Bacon and Grits Casserole

Introduction

This is a great dish if you have left over grits. I used goat cheese because it was what was on hand. This can also be made with cheddar cheese. This is a great dish if you have left over grits. I used goat cheese because it was what was on hand. This can also be made with cheddar cheese.

  • My modifications: used 4 fresh pressed garlic cloves for flavor instead of powder, and omitted 2 egg whites & 3 slices of bacon to reduce cholesterol/cals/fat. Didn't have asparagus so I used carrots and it turned out nice and fluffy. Nice side dish that I would make again! - 1/3/10
