One of my very favorite “southern” foods is grits, and if they are cheese grits, it is even better!! I absolutely adore cheese grits. So when Hubby offered to make a cheese grits pie, I was all over that proposition!
These are fairly mild, not heavy on the cheese (believe me, I’ve had cheese grits that have been more cheese than grits), and very easy to make! The clean-up (my contribution to this recipe) was simple and non-sticky. The leftover are delicious!
