One of my mom’s signature dishes. Even those who insisted that they did not like grits would quickly change their minds after one bite!
- 1 ½ cups white grits
- 6 cups boiling water
- 3 tsp savor salt
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp paprika
- ½ tsp pepper
- 20oz Old English sharp cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 stick butter or margerine
Heat oven to 325º
Boil grits for 6 minutes, remove from heat.
Add eggs and spices to grits, then add cheese and butter. Mix well.
Pour in a large casserole dish and bake for 1 hour.
I haven’t found savor salt in years, so we just mix savory with season salt.
Old English Sharp Cheddar
Impossible to find, except in deli slices. If you can’t find those, a good quality American cheese will do.
Don’t buy instant or quick grits – you need the good ol’ fashioned kind.
Butter vs. Margarine
I always use butter, mom was from the margarine generation. Use whichever suits your style!
