Baked Grits with Cheese and Jalapeños

If you like grits, you’re really gonna love this.

1 cup quick grits (uncooked)
6 Tablespoons butter or margarine
8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese cut into 1/2" chunks
¼ cup pickled Jalapeños, chopped
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
4 whole scallions, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, slightly beaten

Preheat oven to 325º.

Butter a 13x9 inch baking dish. Prepare grits according to package instructions. When the grits have started to thicken, stir in all ingredients except the eggs. Blend well until cheese is mostly melted. Fold in the eggs; spoon mixture into buttered baking dish. Bake in oven until bubbly and slightly browned, about 45 minutes. Allow a few minutes to cool and set. Cut into squares and serve as a side dish.

Optionally, after the grits has cooled, cut into serving size squares and then fry in butter before serving.

I like to have this with fried eggs and slices of fresh tomato.  Yum!
