Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Southern Grits Casserole)

Hello food lovers and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. If you grew up in the south, live in the south, or just love grits then today’s recipe is definitely something you’re going to want to try. I personally love grits, if seasoned properly, and I love breakfast in general so this recipe was a no-brainer when I found it. Even if you have someone in your home that isn’t a big fan of grits, I still think they’ll enjoy this casserole. If you’re making this for a pot-luck or family gathering you can also put this in a slow cooker, after mixing all of the ingredients together, instead of in the baking dish. When I do this in the slow cooker, I just add all of the cheese in with everything else instead of saving a cup to put on top. Also, be sure to taste and season your grits to your liking before mixing everything together. The grits are the key to taking this dish from good to awesome. Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think in the comments section below. As always, be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you aren’t already so you don’t miss a single new post.

Southern Grits Casserole

  • 6 cups Water
  • 2 cups Uncooked Stone Ground Grits
  • 1/2 cup Butter, divided
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 3 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
  • 1 lb Ground Pork Sausage
  • 8 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Milk

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C); lightly grease a large baking dish.
2. In a large saucepan, bring the water to a boil then stir in the grits; reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 5 minutes, until liquid has been absorbed.
3. Mix in 1/4 cup of the butter, the Worcestershire sauce, and the garlic powder; season with salt and pepper to taste.
4. Once the grits are seasoned to your liking, stir in 2 cups of cheese until melted.
5. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the sausage until evenly browned; drain any excess grease and then mix it into the grits.
6. Beat together the eggs and milk in a bowl and pour them into the skillet; lightly scramble the eggs then mix them into the grits.
7. Pour the grits mixture into the prepared baking dish, dot with the remaining butter, and top with the remaining 1 cup of cheese.
8. Bake the casserole for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.
