Reviews for Grits Casserole
"After living in Atlanta for 35 years, we moved to California where many of my new friends have never eaten grits. I thought this might be the perfect way to introduce them to this southern treat. I prepared this casserole for a group of church ladies and they couldn't believe grits were so tasty. I read some of the reviews before preparing this, so I used spicy sausage and 8 oz. of cheddar cheese as others suggested. I will be making this again and again."
"This is a great recipe full of great flavor easy to make and great the next day.I will easily make this again. I think i will try with different kinds of cheeses though."
"This is delicious!!! I added more cheese, 1/2 c. butter and 3/4 c. milk like the others. Also diced canned jalapenos and tony's instead of salt."
"I took this to a meeting this morning and everyone liked it. I think it would be good using hot sausage."
"This was an absolutely amazing dish. The only change the next time I make it is going to be MORE CHEESE!."
"I've been making this recipe for years and it's very good. Mine uses 1/2 cup butter and 3/4 cup milk, but other than that it's about the same."
