Cheesy Bacon Grits Casserole

Cheesy Bacon Grits Casserole

My family has never had grits, now before you get all “well grits are supposed to be creamy” YES I know that, but I tried a recipe that I figured my family would eat. And this was awesome  It was sure a hit and will be sure made again  

What you need
6 cups water
1 tsp salt
2 cups grits
1- 16 oz package of sharp cheddar cheese, I actually used Mexican blend
1/2 cup cooked cut up bacon
1/2 cup melted butter
2 eggs, slightly beaten

In a large saucepan bring water and salt to a boil. Add grits and return to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for about 5 min stirring frequently till grits are creamy and thick. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Add bacon, cheese butter, and eggs and mix well. Pour into a well greased 9×13 pan and bake at 350 until light golden brown about 35-45 min. Enjoy

Tyler, Travis and I tried them before adding anything else and they loved them. I can see us eating these just plain for breakfast  I hope you enjoy this as much as my family did, it’s always fun to try new things, even better when everyone approves LOL
