How to Make Hissy Fit Grits Casserole

This casserole is very easy to make. Cook sausage in a skillet until no longer pink. Drain fat and set aside. In a large saucepan, bring chicken broth 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. Add Velveeta cheese, muenster cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, and butter; stir until melted. Stir in milk. Slowly stir in eggs until blended. Stir in cooked sausage. Transfer grits to a baking dish. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and bake.

  • I used Jimmy Dean sausage. Feel free to substitute turkey sausage.
  • Make sure to use quick-cook grits NOT instant grits.
  • Can substitute water for the chicken broth.
  • Can Hissy Fit Grits Casserole be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the casserole and refrigerate it overnight before baking. You will need to add a few minutes to the cooking time if baking straight from the refrigerator.
  • Can Hissy Fit Grits Casserole be frozen? Yes! You can assemble the casserole and freeze it before baking. Assemble the casserole and let it cool completely. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and foil and freeze.
    • To bake casserole after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed.

  1. As I live in the UK grits aren’t really overly available here what would be a suitable equivalent or substitute?

  2. Haven’t made it but it sounds delicious. Can you substitute a lb of cooked & crumbled bacon ion this recipe?
