I did this just a bit differently. I used everything except the processed cheese and instead of putting the egg into the grits, I poached one and put it on top. I'm a huge grits fan and this made a great lunch for me today. Thanks! Read More

If this is the same recipe that I tried at Jenn's brunch I rate it great! I have never eaten grits before and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't enjoy the plain variety but this dish had just the right amount of flavor to make a wonderful side dish that's different at a brunch. Go for it! Read More

I had never eaten grits before and I have now made this recipe 4 times! I don't buy velveeta so I just used all cheddar and it's absolutely delicious! Read More

I used a Mexican blend of cheese only to give it a more Mexican taste. Cut the recipe in half as it was only for me but kept the two eggs. Its a great keeper for a person who enjoys their green chilis for that extra kick in the morning. Its even good reheated in the microwave. Read More

I love grits casseroles including this one. I made this exactly by the recipe except for cutting it in half. I don't normally have Velveeta so next time I'd like to try it with all cheddar. I like the southwestern flair the green chiles and hot pepper sauce give to this casserole. I made this for dinner with eggs sausage and biscuits. A really good casserole I will fix again. Read More

Wonderful concept tweaked it a bit by using fresh jalapenos added parmesan cheese and topped with onion slices. Real stick-to-the-ribs dish and a pleasant morning wake up. Read More
