Grits & Sausage Casserole


Prep Time:

20 minutes

Cooking Time:

1 hour



 Our guests always asked  for the recipe for this casserole. Of course, we always make them a copy. People who have never tried "grits" before love it and so do Southerners who have been raised on this area staple.

2 # Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage

1 Cup Grits, cooked

1 stick Butter or Margarine

2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Salt & Pepper to taste

5 Eggs

1 1/2 Cups Milk

Brown sausage in skillet and spread in 9x13 casserole dish. Cook grits ( use instant and do these in the microwave).Add butter, cheese, and salt and pepper.  Cool for a while.  Add eggs and milk and pour over sausage.  Bake at 350 for about 1 hour.

Note: I sometimes make these in individual ramekins and freeze.  When I plan to have them the next day, I thaw in refrigerator overnight and bake as directed.

This way I can serve one or two guests at a time.
