Grits Casserole

This recipe isn't really quick as it takes a while to bake but it is really easy so it's likely I will include it in my Quick & Easy cookbook.

Grits Casserole
1/3 cup quick-cooking grits
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup skim milk
1 cup lean ham
1 cup cheese, reduced fat Sargento mexican blend
1 eggs
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp dried parsley
2 dashes hot sauce (2 to 3)
2 egg whites

Boil water and salt and add grits. Remove from heat and let stand 10 minutes. This will be very thick! Combine all ingredients and pour into a deep pie plate coated with PAM.
Bake at 350* for 40 - 45 minutes. Test with a knife to be sure center is done. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
