Creamy Grits Casserole

From Southern Living Magazine

1-1/4 cup uncooked grits
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp red pepper
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1 10oz block cheddar cheese, shredded
1 4oz block smoked Gouda cheese, shredded
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350.

Bring grits, chicken broth, milk, salt, and pepper to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low, and simmer stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes or until thickened. Stir in butter and cheeses until melted.

Gradually stir about 1/4 of hot grits mixture into eggs; add egg mixture to remaining hot grits and stir.

Pour into greased square dish. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly around the edges.
