OK, so this weekend I was in Destin with my sister and her friends for her bachelorette party. One of the girls is an intern at Southern Progress in the test kitchen (I'd weigh 1000 pounds if that were my job). She made breakfast for everyone on Saturday morning, and this is the recipe for the Cheddar Cheese Grits Casserole that was sooooo delicious. Mind you, I don't even like grits, and I couldn't get enough of this. Enjoy!
