This makes a lot of food. If you don't need to feed a crowd, you can half the recipe or split it between two pans. Bake one pan now and freeze one for later. Love a recipe that can do double-duty!

I always get a lot of questions about sausage when I include it in recipes. I use Jimmy Dean or Tennessee Pride sausage. It is next to the bacon. I like to save a little of the sausage and cream cheese mixture to sprinkle on top of the casserole. This is totally optional. I just think it makes a nice presentation. I also sprinkle it with a little dried parsley for color.

We have this on the menu for Thanksgiving day for breakfast. It would also be great for Christmas morning or overnight guests. I promise it will be a hit!

ingredients:


  • 1-1/2 lb pork sausage

  • 1 (8-oz) block cream cheese, softened
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups quick-cooking grits
  • 12-ounces Velveeta, cubed
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

instructions:


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook pork sausage over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain fat. Stir in cream cheese and break into crumbles. Set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, add chicken stock; bring to a boil. Slowly stir in grits. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, covered, 5 to 7 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  4. Add Velveeta cheese and butter; stir until melted. Stir in milk. Slowly stir in eggs until blended. Stir in 3/4 of sausage mixture.
  5. Transfer grits to prepared dish. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and remaining sausage crumbles.
  6. Bake, uncovered, 40 to 45 minutes.

  1. Awesome recipe - what if I want to use stone ground grits? Would it change the cooking process/time?

    1. I am sure that it would. Stone ground grits take much longer to cook. You will need to experiment with the cooking times.

  2. What about using regular grits and not the quick cook ones? How well do you think it would work and how much longer do you think it would take to cook?

    1. I think it would be fine with stone ground grits. You will need to follow the directions on the package you use for the cook time.

    1. If you are making this ahead of time, freeze it unbaked, thaw and cook as directed. If you are reheating leftovers, you can reheat it covered in the oven or in the microwave
