I have lived alone for many years so I learned to cut down recipes for small quantities. You can also use these recipes for larger groups by doubling ingredients.

This is a fantastic grits casserole that's taken to another level. Onions add great flavor, while the cheese makes it nice and creamy. An easy casserole for a weekend breakfast or brunch. It's filled with ingredients people love. Add fresh fruit for a great meal.
