Ingredients

    Egg substitute, liquid (Egg Beaters), .5 cup
    Gouda Cheese, 4 oz
    Feta Cheese, .5 cup, crumbled
    Garlic, 2 tsp
    Butter, unsalted, .5 stick
    Milk, 2%, .5 cup
    Quaker Plain Corn Grits, 1 cup

Directions

Cook 1 cup of grits in 4 cups of water according to package instructions. Plain grits work better but you can use quick cooking, just make sure you follow the cooking instructions. Once cooked, add 1/2 stick of butter or margarine, cheese (get creative here), garlic and stir. In a separate container, mix egg and milk together, then temper with some of the grits. Pour this into the grits once tempered, and stir. Pour mixture into a greased pie plate or square glass dish and bake at 375 F until the top starts to brown. Remove from oven and let cool for ten minutes (this is very important or it will be like eating lava). Serves six.

Note: If you can get stone ground grits from an organic type grocer, use these as they cook up really creamy, and you won't have to add so much butter or margarine. If you want to know where I get mine from (website), send me a message.
