• 3 cups boiling water
  • 3/4 cup grits
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard

In 2-quart saucepan, slowly stir grits and salt into boiling water. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover. Cook 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in cheese, onions and mustard, stirring until cheese melts. Pour grits into 9- to 10-inch pie plate, lightly coated with cooking oil spray. Cover; chill until firm. Cut into 8 slices. Arrange grits on baking pan lightly coated with cooking oil spray. Broil 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
