Southern Sausage and Grits Brunch Casserole


I am expecting a group of friends and family to stop by for brunch over the weekend and wanted an old favorite brunch casserole to serve. This is a casserole that my Aunt made for her ladies club spring brunch and passed the recipe on to other family members and eventually to me. I have changed it a little, but it still has the great flavor for this southern combination.  This is a very easy casserole to make and is ready in no time to set on the table for folks to enjoy!

Southern Sausage and Grits Brunch Casserole
Miz Helen's Kitchen
Ingredients
3 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup corn grits
1/4 cup unsalted butter
8 large eggs, whipped
1/8 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce (to taste)
2 cups Monterrey Jack and Cheddar Cheese Mix, grated
1 pound breakfast sausage, browned
Cooking Spray for the Baking Dish
Directions
In a medium skillet, brown the sausage and set aside.
In a medium sauce pan mix milk, and salt, then bring to a boil.
Stirring constantly, pour in the grits, and bring it back to a boil, reduce the heat and continue to stir until the grits are very thick.
Remove from the heat, stir in the butter, then add the cheese.
In a large mixing bowl whip the eggs and add the Tabasco Sauce, then add the sausage, then add the grits.
Spray a 9X13 baking dish with a cooking spray.
Pour the sausage and grits mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes, until slightly brown around the edge and set in the center.
Remove the casserole from the oven to a cooling rack.
Let set for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
Recipe Tip:
This will freeze really well for up to 3 months. We cut it in individual serving size then into a freezer bag to freeze. A great individual serving for a busy day.

  4. I have been craving grits since I had them with shrimp at my mom's retirement dining room recently. We even went to Golden Corral this past Sunday so I could have grits! Everything else about our breakfast was awful but the grits were good! Guess I need to start making them at home. This recipe looks delicious. Have already pinned. YUM!!
