This is a fantastic recipe. Like everyone mentioned, you need a 9x13 dish. This makes a ton. I halved the recipe one time and it still fed 8 people. A couple nice tweaks to experiment with. When making the quick grits, substitute cream for about half the water. Also, try adding a bulb of roasted garlic.
