This one is my husband's favorite. It's an easy and delicious way to start the day.
1 cup quick cook grits
3 cups chicken broth
2 tbsp butter
2 eggs (beaten)
1/4 cup milk
1 & 1/4 cup shredded cheddar (divided)
3/4 cup diced ham
3 green onions, sliced
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
Cook the grits according to package directions, substituting the broth for the water. Add the butter the last minute of cooking.
Whisk in the eggs.
Add 1 cup of cheese, and the milk. Stir until cheese is melted.
Now, add the ham, onion, garlic, and salt & pepper. Stir.
Pour into a greased 8x8, and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.
Let cool 10 minutes, before serving. Yummy!
