Recipe: Grits and Sausage Casserole
All you need:
1 pound pork breakfast sausage
1 cup quick cooking grits
3 cups of water
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
1 ½ cups of shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
½ cup milk
3 eggs, beaten
All you need to do:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking oil spray (butter flavored preferred). Set aside.
In a large microwaveable bowl, combine the grits and water and salt, stir.
Microwave uncovered on high for 5 minutes, stirring after 2 ½ minutes. If grits are still watery, microwave for another 2 minutes or until grits are the consistency of runny hot cereal.
In the meantime, drop the sausage into a large hot skillet, breaking it into small pieces. Brown the sausage until no longer pink. Drain on paper towels.
Into the bowl with the grits, add the butter and 1 ¼ cups of the cheese until melted. Stir well to completely incorporate the cheese.
Add the sausage and milk. Stir well.
Add the eggs, stirring constantly.
Pour the mixture into the prepared 9 x 13 baking dish.
Sprinkle the top with the remaining cheddar cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let the casserole rest 10 minutes before serving.
