These Southern Baked Cheese Grits are the perfect way to start your morning on the right foot! They’re creamy, loaded with cheesy flavor and topped with bacon crumbles that will make you want to go back for seconds (or thirds!)
When I think of all of my favorite southern staple dishes, cheese grits is one of the first things that comes to my mind. I’ve eaten grits for as long as I can remember, and while you can find grits all over the country, there’s no questioning that the people of the south have an undeniable and unwavering love for the coarsely ground corn meal dish that surpasses all state boundaries.
Not only is it the perfect savory and hearty breakfast dish, but it’s also frequently used in southern seafood dishes as well! (Shrimp and grits, fish and grits, crawfish grits, etc.)
