Cheddar Bacon Grits Casserole


So this year of blogging has obviously gotten off to a rocky start! At first it was just the busyness of the start of the year. And then I couldn't get any of my pictures to upload on to the blog. Days and days spent trying to figure it all out. Finally it's figured out. I have to do a few extra steps but it's fine, whatever. I'm back! And hopefully this won't happen again! Also grits. So good!

5 slices bacon
4 cups water
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups quick cooking grits
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups cheddar cheese (divided)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
4 eggs

Heat oven to 350. Cook bacon in a large pan. Crumble the bacon. Leave 2 tbsp of bacon grease in the pan. Stir in the water and chicken broth then bring to a boil. Carefully stir in the grits then add the garlic powder, black pepper and salt. Reduce heat and stir frequently. Once the grits have thickened, stir in 2 cups of cheddar cheese. Stir in the butter, milk and eggs. Then stir in the crumbled bacon. Pour into a 9x13 baking pan then top with the remaining cheddar. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes.
