Number of Servings: 8


    4 c water
    1-1/4 teaspoons salt
    1 c uncooked quick-cooking grits
    1.5 c (6 oz) shredded FF or soy cheddar cheese, divided
    3/4 c FF milk
    2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)
    2 large eggs
    Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350*.

Bring water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan. Gradually add grits, stirring constantly. Cover and simmer 8 minutes or until thick, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat. Add 1-cup cheese, stirring until cheese melts.

Combine milk and next 3 ingredients (milk through eggs), stirring with a whisk. Stir milk mixture into grits mixture. Pour into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350* for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese; bake an additional 15 minutes or until cheese melts. Let grits stand for 10 minutes before serving.

These are even better leftover. They reheat well in the microwave.

    Love grits, but usually have them with butter and maple syrup. This was a pleasant change. - 2/19/11
