Combine the boiling water, grits and salt in a saucepan; mix well.
Cook, covered, over low heat for 5 minutes or until most of the water is absorbed. Stir in the butter, worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, 1 cup of the cheese and sherry. Fold in the egg until mixed.
Spoon into a greased 2 1/2 - quart baking dish; sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour or until bubbly.
Note: This may be prepared 1 day in advance and refrigerated. Bring to room temperature and bake just before serving.
