4 cups of water
1 teaspoon salt
½ pound cooked crab meat

Into a heavy saucepan add salt to 4 cups of water and bring to a boil.  Add grits, stirring constantly.  Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil.  Cook on low, stirring occasionally.  Cook until mixture thickens and water is absorbed, about 30 minutes.  When done, stir in crab meat, pepper, butter, and cheese until butter is melted.  Pour mixture into buttered baking dish.  Bake uncovered in a 350-degree oven for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and let stand about 10 minutes.  Serve with sliced tomatoes. 8 servings.
