  • 1 3/4 pint milk
  • 6 oz grits
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 4 oz Cheddar cheese grated


  • Lightly butter a casserole with at least a 1.5 litre (2 1/2 pt) capacity.
  • Heat 850 ml (1 1/3 pt) milk to just below the boiling point.
  • Add grits, paprika and salt. Stir constantly over medium heat until the grits absorb the milk and the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.
  • Continue cooking over low heat, stirring almost constantly, until grits lose their raw flavour, 20-25 minutes.
  • Add butter and stir until it is melted and blended.
  • Mix eggs with remaining milk. Add egg mixture and cheese to grits, stirring until well blended.
  • Pour grits into a casserole dish. Bake at 180°C (350°F) Gas Mark 4 until mixture sets and top is lightly browned, 45—55 minutes.
