Recipe: Breakfast Sausage and Grits and Eggs

This recipe for Breakfast Sausage and Grits and Eggs is one of Warren’s specialties…. we have it often on the weekends… it’s easy and so gooood!

I have always loved grits… but have come to love them even more since moving south… Southerners love grits and make them so many different ways… endless recipes… and I haven’t had one I didn’t like yet.

For those of you that are unsure of what grits are… I did a post about grits last year that you may want to read…. So Just What Are Grits?

You can make this with fried eggs, over easy or poached…. We make it occasionally with scrambled eggs also…. the choice is yours. We make 2 eggs per person…

This recipe uses quick cooking grits… if you use regular grits (those grits cook much longer)… follow package directions.


Recipe: Breakfast Sausage and Grits and Eggs

All you need:

1 cup quick cooking grits
3 cups water
¼ teaspoon salt
Eggs (quantities based on personal preference)
2-3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 lb. breakfast sausage

All you need to do:

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.

Drop small pieces of the breakfast sausage into the hot skillet and brown until cooked thoroughly. If using sausage patties, cook patties and cut them into small pieces after cooking.

Remove the sausage and drain on paper towels. Set aside.

While the sausage is cooking… put the grits, water and salt in a microwaveable bowl.

Microwave the grits on high for approximately 8 minutes…. until the grits are cooked and not watery. Stir occasionally.

Add the butter to the grits and stir.

Add the sausage to the grits and mix thoroughly.

If frying your eggs, remove most of the sausage grease from the skillet and fry your eggs.

If not frying the eggs…make them the desired way.

Place a large serving spoonful of sausage and grits on the plate and serve the eggs on top.

If making scrambled eggs…make the eggs in the same skillet (after removing most of the sausage grease...leave just enough to flavor the eggs)as the sausage was so it picks up the flavor of the sausage.

Break the eggs into small pieces and mix into the grits mixture.

Makes 4 servings.

I'll try it. I never really cared for grits myself, I know it's a southern staple, but I'm willing to try it again!
