Breakfast in the South just wouldn't be truly Southern without grits! Here's a recipe for Mama's Grits Casserole:
½ stick Butter, room temp
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
Add grits and salt to boiling water. Cook over medium heat until thick. Add milk and cook until thick again. Remove from heat. While hot fold in eggs, butter and 3/4 cup cheese. Pour into greased 8x8 casserole dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 30 minutes at 350.
Note: For an added kick, add: 1 minced garlic clove, 1 t black pepper and 1 sm minced, seeded jalapeño.
