I found this recipe in a Christmas cookbook and thought I would share it. I made it for my family on Christmas morning and they liked it so much they returned for second helpings. Needless to say I had none left over. I used leftover ham from my Christmas Eve supper. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

How to Make Savory Ham-And-Swiss Breakfast Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Bring first 6 ingredients to a boil in a saucepan; gradually whisk in grits. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 5-7 minutes, whisking occasionally. Add 1/2 cup cheese, stirring until cheese melts. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes. Lightly beat 2 eggs and stir into grits mixture; pour into a greased 10" deep-dish pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes; remove from oven.
