Cheesy Corn and Grits
This traditional Southern favorite, cheese grits, is made with cream-style corn for an extra-creamy dish. It's hearty enough to be a meatless main dish.
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon instant chicken bouillon granules
1/2 cup quick-cooking grits
1/4 cup finely chopped green onion or chives
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 (8-ounce) can cream-style corn
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (1 ounce)
- In a medium saucepan bring water and chicken granules to boiling. Gradually stir in grits. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Stir in onion and the 1/2 cup cheese. Stir in eggs, milk, and corn. Transfer to a lightly greased 1-quart casserole.
- Bake, uncovered, in a 350°F (175°C) oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until set in center. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Let stand 1 to 2 minutes before serving to melt cheese.
Makes 4 servings.
