Recipe type: Side Dishes Recipes
Ingredients
  • 2 cups whipping cream or Half and Half
  • 8 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 2 cups grits – not instant or quick cooking
  • 1 1-pound bag frozen mustard greens or collard greens
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2½ Cups Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
Instructions
  1. Butter a 13 x 9 or 2-quart casserole. Combine the cream and 6 cups of the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Stir in the
  2. grits and cook over medium heat until the mixture returns to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to simmer and continue to
  3. cook, for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the grits are done. Stir frequently to keep it from sticking or burning to the
  4. pan. Add a little milk if needed to thicken to the right consistency—which should be like creamy on-the-thin-side
  5. oatmeal.
  6. While the grits are simmering, cook the frozen greens with the remaining 2 cups of chicken broth until tender, about 5 to
  7. minutes. Drain the greens well in a colander, pressing with a spoon to get as much liquid out as you can. Add the
  8. butter, 2 cups of the Parmesan and pepper to the cooked grits and stir until the butter is melted. Stir in the cooked
  9. greens and spoon into the buttered casserole. Top with the additional ½ cup of Parmesan and the crumbled bacon. This
  10. can be served at room temperature or heated in a 350 oven until browned on top.
