Southern Grits Casserole (All Recipes)

This is one of those recipes that transcends relationships, time, and distance.  I learned to cook this from a woman I loved very much.  Unfortunately, I didn't stay with her son, so I lost her.  But I can still cook this dish and remember her teaching me.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cups uncooked grits
  • 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 12 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking dish.
  2. Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan, and stir in grits. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 5 minutes, until liquid has been absorbed. Mix in 1/2 the butter and 2 cups cheese until melted.
  3. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the sausage until evenly browned. Drain, and mix into the grits. Beat together the eggs and milk in a bowl, and pour into the skillet. Lightly scramble, then mix into the grits.
  4. Pour the grits mixture into the prepared baking dish. Dot with remaining butter, and top with remaining cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.
