Ham & Grits Crustless Quiche

(6 servings)

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup quick-cooking grits - uncooked
  • 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chopped ham
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) Cheddar cheese - shredded
  • 3 large eggs - lightly beaten
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 or 2 teaspoons hot sauce
This quiche freaked me out... in a great way. I've made dozens and dozens of different quiches. For this one, I was stunned how only three eggs gives the appearance and texture of a quiche made with 6 eggs. The grits give the dish substance without weighing it down. The only change I made was using half parsley and half chopped chives instead of just parsley. I wrapped leftover servings and it was just as good the next day reheated in the microwave for 40 seconds. All in all... I'm super happy with this one. (This recipe was submitted in 2002.

This dish is a favorite at the Country Oaks Bed & Breakfast in Mountain View, Arkansas, or as you might know it: The Folk Music Capital of the World! For a tasty variation, try using Italian Sausage in place of ham (saute, drain & crumble well).
