Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a pot, bring 6 cups water and the salt to a boil; gradually add the grits, stirring occasionally. Return the water to a boil; lower the heat to a simmer, stirring occasionally. The grits should be thick in about 15 minutes. While the grits cook, prepare the other ingredients - shred the cheese, beat the egg yolks and whip the whites until peaks form. Slice the scallions very thin, and mix with 1 tablespoon olive oil. When the grits are cooked, remove them from the heat; stir in the butter, sesame seeds, cheese, paprika, garlic powder and egg yolks. Carefully fold in the egg whites. Grease a 7 1/2 by 11 3/4 inch casserole with the remaining oil. Pour the mixture in; bake 30 minutes. Sprinkle on the scallions and cook an additional 20 to 30 minutes, until firm. Serves 8 to 10 as a side dish
