Leftover Baked Grits 

Recipe By: Chef Lisa A. Heidelberg         

Time: 30-40 mins

Serves: 6 servings


  • Leftover cooked grits (follow directions on box)
  • Roasted rainbow of bell peppers (red, yellow, and green)
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (or cheese of choice)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • half T of Cajun seasoning
  • 1 T of house seasoning


  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • Put mixture on a greased sheet tray or divide into portions in a muffin tin.
  • Bake in a 425 degree oven until tops are slightly crispy. Approximately 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let sit for ten minutes, then plate and serve with your favorite protein.

Chef’s Tip: I am a big fan of pairing the baked grits with some roasted or sauteed shrimp. However, chicken, pork, or roasted veggies would also be fabulous.
