Description

I had a version of this dish at a B&B in rural central Virginia. I’ve made changes to my original presentation and like each newer version. It can definitely be made the day before and baked the next morning.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Bulk Sausage
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk
  • Salt And Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Lawry's Seasoning Salt
  • 3 cups Grits, Cooked To A Stiff Consistency
  • 5 Tablespoons Butter, Unsalted
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Divided

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook sausage and break it up into small pieces during cooking. Whisk eggs, milk and seasonings into a large bowl. Add grits, butter, and 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Mix till all ingredients are incorporated.

When the sausage is done, drain and put in a 9 x 9 pan. Top with grits mixture, spreading out to the sides and all over the sausage. Don’t stir the sausage into the mixture. Top with the remaining shredded cheese and bake for 1 hour.

Can be served with fruit, pancakes or waffles.

my man can be so disciplined about his food… except when it comes to eggs, and especially grits! i think i’ll get some great local turkey sausage and make his sunday morning ASAP – thanks for sharing this recipe!

I made two of these casseroles for a wedding brunch. They were delicious! I made the casseroles two days in advance and froze them. They defrosted and cooked beautifully. I plan to experiment with freezing smaller servings, so I will have them on hand for unexpected overnight company (or myself!)

This is one of my most requested recipes since I found it here on Tasty Kitchen a few years ago. Of course, one branch of my family hails from the Florida panhandle. So they are big fans of grits. Anyway, I think this breakfast dish is a delicious departure from the typical bread-based egg casserole. It should be on more people’s radar which is why I decided to (rather belatedly) rate it.
