How to make it

  • Remove from heat. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt, cheese and pepper. Cool 5 minutes.
  • Place remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and egg whites in a large bowl and beat with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • Gently fold grits into the egg whites and add the chives.
  • Spoon mixture into a 13x9" baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top the grits with the melted butter.
