Cheesy Grits Casserole - GF

8 c water

2 c coarse, stone-ground white grits (not instant) (12 ozs), rinsed

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 stick unsalted butter, cut into chunks

1/2 lb sharp white cheddar cheese, coarsely shredded

3 large eggs, beaten

Preheat the oven to 350°. Butter a 13-by-9-inch baking dish. In a large, heavy pot, bring the water to a boil. Sprinkle the grits into the water, stirring constantly, and return to a boil. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the grits are just tender, about 30 minutes. Season generously with salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until the grits are very thick and tender, about 10 minutes longer.

Off the heat, stir in the butter and cheese, then stir in the eggs. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish and bake for 1 hour, until bubbling and the top is golden. Let the grits casserole cool for 20 minutes before serving.

Time: 140 minutes

Serves: 12

This is delicious warm or cold. It would be great for a potluck.
