You all know how I proclaim my love of grits
from the deepest valleys to the highest mountains!
These are our grits at work…sometimes the line is 20 deep of us just waiting for that warm bowl of comfort!
Today I’m sharing a recipe that my daughter, Jessica,
shared with me recently…she has my twisted love
for this awesome goodness also.
I made it for a co-worker whose team
was having their breakfast Holiday Party .
They looooved it!
I just know you will too 🙂
Garlic Cheese Grits & Sausage
6 cups chicken broth
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 cups grits–I use Quick Grits–not instant
16 oz shredded Colby Jack Cheese
1/2 cup cream
4 eggs, beaten
1 stick unsalted butter
8 oz grated white or regular cheddar
1 lb sausage, cooked and drained
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray.
Cook and drain the sausage; pour in the baking pan.
Bring the broth, salt, pepper and garlic powder
to a boil in a 2 quart saucepan.
Stir in the grits and whisk until completely combined.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer
until the grits are thick, about 8-10 minutes.
Add all the Colby Jack cheese except for 1 cup.
Add the cream and stir.
Gradually stir in the eggs and butter
until everything is well combined.
Pour over the sausage in the baking dish.
Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of
Colby Jack and the 8 oz cheddar.
Bake on 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
