Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine

Gradually stir in grits, beating constantly with wire whisk to prevent lumps. Reduce heat; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes (grits will be very stiff). Remove saucepan from heat and blend in cheese.

  • In a large bowl, mix hot pepper sauce, pepper eggs, and remaining 2 cups milk until blended. Gradually stir grits mixture into the egg mixture.

  • Grease shallow 2 1/2 quart casserole. Pour grits mixture into casserole. Bake, uncovered, 45 minutes, or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean
