Oklahoma Cheese Grits


It's a great day when my mom serves up this Southern specialty! Cooked grits are combined with seasonings, cheese, and eggs, then baked. The eggs are the secret to light fluffy grits that melt in your mouth! You may adjust or eliminate the hot sauce to suit your taste.

  • ¾ cup butter

  • 1 pound processed cheese, cubed

  • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • ½ teaspoon hot pepper sauce

  • 3 eggs, beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.

  2. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Stir in grits, and reduce heat to low. Cover, and cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat, cool slightly, and fold in the eggs. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
