Cheese Grits

Start with fresh stone ground grits for this recipe as slow cooked grits have superior flavor.This dish can be served for breakfast, but also makes a great side dish and holds its own on a buffet. Experiment and play with additional herbs & such.

1 cup stone ground grits, uncooked
4 cups water
1 T. seasoned salt
1 stick butter or margarine
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 6 oz. Roll garlic cheese (spreadable cheese)
1 6 oz. Jar cheese whiz and 1 T. garlic, minced
3 eggs
"dash" of cayenne pepper (I use 1/4 t.)

Cook the grits in the salted water until done, about 30-45 minutes. Once grits are cooked, then stir in the butter and cheese until it is melted. Mix the eggs with the cayenne pepper and add to the mixture. Pour into a buttered casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes to an hour.
