The Technique

Classic Grits Casserole

A good grits casserole is one a hostess can rely on for a number of occasions particularly when an early morning gathering is in order. It is the answer when feeding a crowd as it can be prepared a day or two ahead of time before baking & serving. Simply follow the recipe as instructed. Cover & chill. Allow the casserole dish to stand at room temperature 30 minutes before baking as directed adding an additional 5 to 10 minutes, if necessary. Be certain the center registers at least 160 degrees on a thermometer to ensure the eggs cook thoroughly. Learn how to make Classic Grits Casserole & plan to include the dish on your next brunch menu with friends.

Although I would never turn down a bowl of well seasoned stone ground cheese grits, I’m particularly fond of the lighter texture a casserole provides due to the addition of the eggs.

5 cups water
1 tsp kosher salt
1 cup stone ground grits 
1 cup extra sharp Cheddar cheese
1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
2 lightly beaten eggs
Garnishes: Freshly ground pepper & freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Bring the water & salt to a rolling boil in a 3 1/2 quart saucepan over Medium-High heat. Whisk in the grits & reduce the heat to Medium-Low heat, whisking occasionally, 30 to 40 minutes or until the grits are tender. Partially cover the grits while cooking to keep spattering contained. Remove the grits from the heat. Stir in the cheeses, the butter & the ground red pepper. Let stand 5 minutes. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk the mixture well & stir in the eggs. Pour the grits mixture into a lightly greased 2 quart casserole dish. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until throughly heated & puffed over the surface. Garnish, if desired.

How To Prepare Classic Grits Casserole

Classic Grits Casserole was always on the menu during the holidays & for special celebrations throughout the year. My grandmother often spoke of preparing her recipe with hoop cheese although an extra sharp Cheddar delivers an equally pleasing taste. Stone ground grits offer wonderful texture in this particular version. Look to The Basics: Stone Ground Grits for additional pointers on preparing them for this company worthy dish.

When preparing grits, bring the water to a boil with a little salt then add the grits. Whisk them into the water vigorously to keep them nice & smooth. Reduce the heat & stir the grits occasionally. If they seem to be sticking to the pot a bit, run a wooden spoon around the base of it to loosen them & whisk them until smooth again. Partially cover the grits while cooking to keep spattering contained.

 After approximately 30 to 40 minutes the grits should be thick enough to hold a ribbon when a whisk or spoon is run through them. Taste the grits to be certain the texture is toothsome tender. They should have a gritty yet milky appearance as the water will become cloudy as they cook due to the starch that is released.

 Remove the grits from the heat. Stir in the cheeses, the butter & the ground red pepper. Let stand 5 minutes. This will prevent the eggs from cooking too quickly.
