1 cup quick-cooking grits

4 1/2 cups boiling water 

1 teaspoon salt 

10 ounces herb-and-garlic cheese, such as Boursin 

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) salted butter 

2 medium eggs 

1/2 cup milk 

1 tablespoon salted butter, melted 

1 cup crushed cornflakes 


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-by-12-by-2-inch casserole dish.
  2. Cook the grits in the boiling water with the salt until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the cheese and butter to the hot grits and stir until melted and incorporated. Beat the eggs and add the milk to the beaten eggs. Slowly stir the egg mixture into the grits. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish. Pour the melted butter over the cornflakes and stir to distribute the butter. Sprinkle the crumb mixture on top of the grits. Bake for 45 minutes.
