Aunt Hazel’s Grits Casserole

THIS RECIPE belonged to my husband’s great aunt and we think she clipped it from a newspaper. The unusual casserole quickly became a family favorite, often requested at reunions, birthday or holiday dinners. Even though the recipe was shared with many, nobody could quite duplicate Aunt Hazel’s most popular dish.
