BAKED EGGS IN CHEESE GRITS
Spray individual ramekins with Pam and divide cooked cheese grits, filling each approximately half full. Make an indention in the middle of the grits in each ramekin with the back of a large spoon. Then crack an egg into each ramekin, pour a tablespoon of Half and Half over each egg, then a shake of garlic salt and twist of black pepper. Bake for 20 minutes in 350 oven until egg are just set. Enjoy!
