We really enjoyed this dish. I made one similar a couple of years ago and liked this one better. Next time I will reserve a bit of the cheese to sprinkle on top. Thank you for the recipe.

Every once and a while, I try to teach my Yankee roommates about the wonder of grits. So when I came across this recipe today with a huge amount of leftover ham, it was time for another lesson! This was really excellent and I can't think of anything to add to it as written. Nice and creamy and delicious. But what could be bad about cheese grits? With ham!

This was an easy recipe. I really like garlic flavor so I doubled the garlic powder. It wasn't too powerful. Great way to use leftover ham. Smelled so good while baking in the oven. Definitely use the green onions as it adds color as well as important flavor.

Made this recipe exactly as written for a dinner entre, it was a hit. Very good and filling, I baked mine in an iron skillet, it turned out perfectly.

This grits bake was wonderful. I was looking for one that was quick, easy and tasty, and this is it! Most other recipes took over an hour to bake but this one's ready in less than a half hour. Will definitely make again. We used half turkey and half ham which worked just fine.
