  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fry the bacon in a large deep skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, reserving 3 tablespoons of the drippings.
  2. Bring the water to a boil and stir in the grits. Cook and stir over medium heat until thick, about 5 minutes. Crumble in about half of the bacon and stir in bacon drippings, processed cheese, milk and eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish and sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the top.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is browned and grits are set, about 40 minutes.

Love, Love, Love this recipe! My grandma made this recipe in a dutch oven on every camping trip my family went on when I was growing up. If you are looking for Southern comfort food, you will love this recipe! You can also mix in chopped green onions or chopped green chillies for a little variety.

This was pretty good. I only had instant grits and had to use double the amount, I guess because they were instant. I didn't use the processed cheese, only the cheddar, and it seemed pretty cheesy (although next time I think I will add at least some of the processed cheese). I don't think I would add the bacon grease the next time, to make it healthier. I will definitely make this again, thanks for the recipe.

We have seen several things about grits and have wanted to try them so this was a great opportunity to do that. This recipe was really simple. We followed the directions exactly. It didn't need very much salt at all in our opinion ~ you'll want to taste it to see if salt and pepper are needed before adding in the eggs since tasting raw eggs can potentially make you sick. It is rather runny so moving it to the oven can be a little tricky. We cooked it for 30 min and checked it, it was bubbly but not golden brown. 10 more minutes and a beautiful browned cheesy crust and the grits were completely set. Great creaminess from the processed cheese and the sharpness from the cheddar and who doesn't love bacon? I sprinkled cilantro on the top and chalula sauce on my plate (after tasting so I could review fairly). My one question was why did I need to cook 8 slices of bacon to only use some of the grease and half of the cooked bacon? Perhaps I was supposed to sprinkle it on the top with the cheddar cheese. I make a bacon sandwich instead ;)

What are we supposed to do with the extra pieces of bacon? I just crumbled them over the top.
