    1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter

    1 egg
    1/3 cup heavy cream
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 2-quart casserole with 2 tablespoons of butter.

    Combine remaining 1/4 cup butter, water, and salt in a heavy medium saucepan over medium heat. When mixture comes to a simmer, add the grits, stirring until thoroughly combined. Continue to cook the grits at a simmer, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 15 minutes.
