“It's a great day when my mom serves up this Southern specialty! Cooked grits are combined with seasonings, cheese, and eggs, then baked. The eggs are the secret to light fluffy grits that melt in your mouth! You may adjust or eliminate the hot sauce to suit your taste.”

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Stir in grits, and reduce heat to low. Cover, and cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mix in the butter, cheese, seasoning salt, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, and salt. Continue cooking for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Remove from heat, cool slightly, and fold in the eggs. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the top is lightly browned.

I've made these several times now with a few changes: I use cheddar/Jack cheeses instead of processed, and I double the hot sauce (Tapatio) and omit the seasoning salt; I also leave out the eggs, as they just don't seem necessary. What I want to point out is that this can really be a one-dish meal. It's not necessary to cook everything atop the stove and then transfer to a baking dish for the oven. I simply throw all the ingredients together in a baking dish, then toss it in the oven. After about half an hour, I stir well, then let it go for another half hour or so. The grits are cooked to perfection, and I just made a very easy, quick meal! My family loves it, so on occasion, I throw it together for dinner. The ease of it all makes me happy, and they're happy 'cause they like it so much!



Great recipe! This is one where you can cut back on the sodium and calories without really missing them. In keeping with the way I grew up eating grits (as a foil for richer foods) I omitted the seasoned salt and used half the cheese (sharp cheddar instead of processed to keep the flavor) and reduced the butter to 1/4 cup.



This recipe is our family's favorite cheese grits recipe. Fluffy and wonderful! Only use 1/2 tsp of salt though. Last year we (30 of us) did a side by side comparison at Easter with the original recipe and a reduced fat version. I used this recipe and made it with half the amount of butter and light processed cheese and everyone liked the lower fat version better than the original. Just an option. It is also wonderful made with grated sharp cheddar cheese instead of the processed cheese. Great recipe Mollie!
