Comfort Food - Cheese Grits Casserole

I'll fill you in later this week about the reason I made a Cheese Grits Casserole. For now, just a quick picture and recipe.

Cheese Grits Casserole

4 cups water
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 cup uncooked quick-cooking grits
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
2 large eggs
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°. Bring water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan. Gradually add grits, stirring constantly. Cover and simmer 8 minutes or until thick, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat. Add 1 cup cheese and butter, stirring until cheese melts.

Combine milk and next 3 ingredients (milk through eggs), stirring with a whisk. Stir milk mixture into grits mixture. Pour into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese; bake an additional 15 minutes or until cheese melts. Let grits stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Oh. MY. GOD. My mother in law makes this and it's the best thing ever. She uses a log of garlic flavored velveeta.

Thanks for the recipe - I love cheese, I love grits, and this is definitely getting made tonight because I have all the ingredients waiting for me. Of course I may just have to add a few things like some chopped mushrooms and peppers.
