Directions:
Bring water to a boil in a 2 quart saucepan. Add grits and return to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook gently until thickened (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat, add cheese and stir until melted. Add butter/margarine. Beat eggs and seasonings. Mix in butter and gradually add egg mixture until combined. Pour into a 1 quart casserole and cook 40 - 45 minutes at 350 until "set".

Microwave instructions: Mix water and grits in a 2 quart microwaveable container. Cook for 8 - 9 minutes on Full Power, stirring after each 2 minutes. Mix according to previous directions. Cook in microwaveable casserole on 80% power 5 - 6 minutes or until "set". Stir after 3 minutes. You may wish to brown top in oven or under broiler for a few minutes.

Personal Notes:
This is nice for breakfast, brunch, lunch or supper. This grits recipe is one that even "grits impaired" folks always seem like. I usually increase the amount of garlic or garlic powder.
