    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.
