I’m going to dinner with my family tonight
I absolutely adore grits any way I can get them.This looks like an awesome recipe and might just make my hubby like them after all.Thank you!Certainly!
OK…I’m giving this as written, cause it is a definite “BoBo Classic.” Be aware that she made some changes. Note the following:
You can no longer get the garlic cheese roll. Use Velveeta (8 oz) and add 1 Tbsp garlic powder
There are no more regular grits (I did find them this year), use quick, NOT INSTANT…cook for 20 minutes, like regular grits.
Up the number of eggs. The more, the firmer the casserole. 4 or 5 is best.
Feel free to add savories…ham, bacon, onions, peppers, etc!
Back to the Classic!
1 C regular grits
4 C water
Salt and pepper to taste
1 stick oleo (butter)
6 oz garlic cheese
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 C milk
Preheat oven to 300°
Cook grits to package directions, but up cooking time to 20 minutes for quick grits…add salt NOW, or you’ll never get them salted right! When almost done, add the butter and cheese. Beat the eggs and milk together and temper with grits, then add. Pour into greased casserole dish and bake x 45 minutes, or until casserole begins to set.
THis is from the cook book that I'm putting together for my sons, of our family's traditional dishes. Some of them are common, like Campbell's Green Bean casserole, but others, like this, are harder to find.
Where did you find these items at? I would love to try them.I was invited out for Christmas dinner, and being vegetarian always makes it a bit complicated where the "meat" is concerned. But I found these this year, which were really good.
I think the stuffed turkey ones are "holiday specials" only, and aren't available year round. But I've tried other Gardein products, and have liked them.Where did you find these items at? I would love to try them.
