1.5 cups yellow grits
2 cups cold water
5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 scallions, thinly sliced
4 oz mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 11 inch tart shell with butter or oil.
In a saucepan, bring the yellow grits and water to a boil, then cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread the grits evenly out into the pan, using a flat turner or knife to straighten up the edge.
