Cheesy Grits Casserole

I’m cashing in on fond memories of meals my grandma used to cook for our family, with this recipe. It probably doesn’t hurt that I’m pregnant and craving grits too.

The original included copious amounts of cheese, and sausage, which is not something I wanted to pair with my grits, but I knew how to fix this!

I removed the dairy, and a secret ingredient to help decrease the carbs per serving. it worked so well that my southern husband thought it was nothing but corn grits. That means “Mission Accomplished” around the Treehouse.
