admin's picture
  Water 8 Cup (128 tbs)
  Grits 2 Cup (32 tbs), rinsed
  Ground pepper To Taste
  Unsalted butter 1 , cut in to chunks
  Sharp white cheddar cheese 1⁄2 Pound, coarsely shredded
  Eggs 3 Large, beaten
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste

1. 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 shredded Cheddar cheese, then stir in the beaten eggs.
2. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish and bake for 1 hour, until the grits are bubbling and the top is golden. Let cool for 20 minutes before serving.
