Reviews for Cheese 'n' Grits Casserole
"This was the first time I made cheese grits. WOW what a great recipe--"
"These grits were so very flavorful, and the best part was I didn't have to stand at the stove and stir them as long as the cheesy grits recipe I normally use. My grits were a bit soupy even after letting them stand for 10 minutes, but I was using a Pampered Chef stone baking dish, so maybe it needed to cool longer. Next time I'll just use a glass dish."
"I sprinkled some extra cheese on top...yum! I used sharp cheddar."
