Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place a pot to medium-low heat; add oil, onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until fragrant and starting to brown in spots, 5 to 7 minutes. Add 1 cup broth and salt; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add collards (or kale); stir until wilted down to about one-third the volume and bright green, 1 to 2 minutes. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Adjust heat to maintain a simmer, and add water, 1/4 cup at a time, if the pan seems dry.
  3. Meanwhile, bring 2 cups water and the remaining 1 cup broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Pour in grits in a steady stream, whisking constantly. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, whisking often, until thick, about 5 minutes. Combine 1/4 cup salsa, cheese, and egg in a small bowl. Remove the grits from the heat and quickly stir in the cheese mixture until combined.
  4. Spread about half the grits in the prepared baking dish. Top with greens, spreading evenly, then spread the remaining grits over the greens. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
  5. Bake the casserole until hot and bubbling, about 18 - 20 minutes. Remove from oven, wait about 10 minutes before serving.
