We use to make this casserole often for a late breakfast and loved it, but for some reason, we kind of forgot about it after we moved. Weird, right?
But our local grocery store has their house sausage on sale last week, and suddenly it hit me – I need a sausage cheesy grits casserole!
I was mildly concerned that the kids wouldn’t like it – especially Hadassah, who doesn’t like anything spicy (sausage). How silly of me! We’re talking about grits here, slathered with butter and cheese. Who doesn’t like that?!
So we ate it for supper. The whole thing. Like the pigs we are. Yup.
Our big move couldn’t keep us away from our favorite breakfast casserole forever!
