You can use plain corn meal, stone ground is best. Same as grits.

I am Canadian and in my Province we don't have Grits are there any substitute?

Hello! Unfortunately, there is no substitute for grits in this casserole.

How do you combine the hot grits and raw eggs and not have them becoming scrambled?

Hi Glenda! The eggs should be lightly beaten first. Before you add them to the mixture, you add cheese, milk, and butter. These ingredients help prevent it from scrambling.


I started putting egg and cooked crumbled sausage two years ago, at the last two min of cooking the grits. They are fluffier and lots of taste. The Little Lady I was the caretaker off really loved them as well. Some of the other family members liked it this way as well. Quick and easy. Haven't tried the Casserole yet sounds pretty good. It's only me now, can you freeze the left overs?

Good basic recipe. Add some crumbled cooked country sausage and a teaspoon of minced garlic and, oh yeah, more cheese, and you got a great dish that beats mac/cheese any day south of the Mason Dixon. And for all you worry warts about nutritional value... just enjoy!!

tamibaker2. There are ways to figure out the nutritional value.

as a Canadian I have no idea what Grits are! Would love to know!!

sounds good, maybe a smashed garlic clove would enhance the flavor


I get so tired of you people wanting nutritional information. IF YOU NEED IT YOU FIGURE IT OUT.

I added some garlic powder to mine. Very good!
