Expert Tips

This cheesy casserole makes a great brunch dish. Pair it with a bowl of fresh fruit and a side of thickly-sliced Texas toast.

"Grits" is simply another name for ground corn and can be bought in several grinds from coarse to fine. The finest milled corn grits are cornmeal, used to make cornbread.
