How to Make Mississippi Sin Grits Casserole

This dish is very easy to make. In a large saucepan, bring chicken broth to a boil. Slowly stir in grits. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, covered, 5 to 7 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Add cream cheese, cheddar cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and butter; stir until melted. Stir in sour cream. Slowly stir in eggs until blended. Stir in chopped ham. Transfer grits to a baking dish. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and bake.

  • Make sure to use quick-cook grits NOT instant grits.
  • You can substitute water for the chicken broth.
  • I use Frank’s Hot Sauce. You can use more or less hot sauce depending on your personal preference.
  • Can Mississippi Sin Grits Casserole be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the casserole and refrigerate it overnight before baking. You will need to add a few minutes to the cooking time if baking straight from the refrigerator.
  • Can Mississippi Sin Grits Casserole be frozen? Yes! You can assemble the casserole and freeze it before baking. Assemble the casserole and let it cool completely. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and foil and freeze.
    • To bake casserole after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed.
