Cooking Light Virtual Supper ~ Brunch

I am a part of a fun supper club sponsored by Cooking Light... we get together one evening a month for a virtual supper club. Today for our Virtual Supper Club we are having a brunch for Mother's Day. Since we are spread all over North America, we go to CookingLight.com to find our recipes, and everyone brings what they like.
We all know that southerners love a good brunch. This recipe was right up my alley. Grits Casserole with Pesto Butter The grits casserole is different from my standard cheese grits... much lighter and very good. Whipping egg whites to a frenzy creates a light grits soufflee. It is beautiful when it comes out of the oven. I have to admit that the pesto butter was a little over the top and was amazing... but then how can you go wrong with fresh pesto?
Now let's see what everyone else has brought for brunch!
Shelby is bringing Waffles with Double Berry Syrup light style
Jamie has a Mushroom Fritatta
Val has a Sweet Potato and Canadian Bacon Hash that I can't wait to get a scoop of.
Patsy is bringing some Triple Fruit Scones
Y'all enjoy,
Sandi

I love how they look more like a souffle than a traditional casserole. The pesto must really take them up a notch!

This turned out beautifully. I spent 5 months in TN and loved the grits. I'll be keeping this recipe.
