Mr. Food Test Kitchen Tip!
- To make individual servings, spoon mixture evenly into a sprayed muffin tin and chill. Just before serving, warm in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through or pop them out of the muffin tin and warm them up in the microwave.
- For some other ways to enjoy classic all-American grits, why not try our BBQ Beef and Grits or our Golden Grits Casserole.
