    Awesome Layered Grits

    4 cups water
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup quick-cooking grits
    6 ounces garlic-flavored process cheese; shredded (1-1/2
    -- cups)
    1/4 cup butter
    1 large sweet onion; cut into thin
    -- slivers (1 cup)
    1/4 cup milk
    2 eggs; beaten
    1 cup snipped fresh basil
    3 medium tomatoes; thinly sliced
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese; (4 oz.)
    1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese; (4 oz.)

    These cheesy grits make a fabulous addition to a summer brunch--especially
    if you prepare them with ripe tomatoes from your garden or a local
    farmers' market.
    Prep: 25 min.
    Baking: 45 min.
    Standing: 10 min.
    In a large saucepan, bring the water and salt to boiling. Gradually stir
    in the grits. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 7 minutes or until thick,
    stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in garlic-flavored cheese and
    butter until melted. Stir in slivered onion, milk, and eggs. Transfer
    mixture to a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Bake, uncovered, in a 350
    degree F oven for 40 minutes.
    Sprinkle snipped basil over baked grits. Arrange tomato slices over
    basil. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese. Return to
    oven and bake 5 minutes more. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Makes
    8 servings.
