Is it a surprise to you to learn that I love breakfast? Today's post will illustrate yet another recipe that is good for breakfast! I served it recently when a friend came for breakfast.
They are ready for the next step....
Stir until the butter and cheese are melted.
Now, we are at the point where we need to temper some eggs, so slowly add a small amount of hot grits to three eggs, stirring all the while.
Now, this is the part I like! Cover and refrigerate overnight! Then, remove it from the refrigerator 15 minutes before baking.
CHEESY GRITS CASSEROLE (recipe from a magazine or newspaper; can't remember which; have had it for years and years! I glued it onto a recipe card, and the adhesive has yellowed!)
1 1/2 cups uncooked regular grits
1/2 cup butter
3 cups (3/4 pound) shredded medium-sharp Cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons paprika, divided
3 eggs, beaten
- Cook grits according to package directions. Add butter and cheese; stir until melted. Add Worcestershire sauce and 1 teaspoon paprika, mixing well. Add a small amount of hot grits to eggs, stirring well; stir egg mixture into remaining grits. Pour grits into a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon paprika. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Remove from refrigerator 15 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
Yield - 8 servings (I find this to be very generous servings!)
Now, you're ready to invite a friend to breakfast this weekend!
Oh! By the way! It may be a good time to bake a cherry pie, too! Happy birthday to George!
