Baked Cheddar Grits with Bacon

By Pielove, member

February 7th, 2009

This recipe was good.  As a Yankee transplanted to the Midwest, I do not get grits.  I also didn't feel like buying grits that I would likely never use up, so I used really good stone-ground cornmeal.  Still, this was light, fluffy, and cheesy with a good corn taste.  I cooked it in a wider, shallow dish because I love crusty edges and these edges did not dissapoint!  We had the bacon on the side so it would preserve its crunch.  Given that this was a huge production that took a long time to make and produced tons of dishes, in the future I would probably just make a pan of cornbread.
