This recipe is a real winner. My husband actually makes it better than I do. He prepares it for the monthly breakfasts we have in our Sunday School department. I prepare it for dinner…..there are never any leftovers that last until the next day.
1 pound ground pork sausage
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup uncooked quick-cooking grits
1 stick butter/margarine
1 ½ cups (6 ounces) shredded, sharp cheddar cheese
¼ cup milk
1 clove garlic, pressed (I use 1 teaspoon minced garlic)
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
Cook sausage in skillet over medium heat…stir until it crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain. Bring broth to a boil in a 3-quart pan. Stir in grits, cook according to package directions. Remove from heat, add butter and cheddar cheese. Stir in sausage, milk and garlic. Stir in a small amount of grits into the egg mixture then pour the egg mixture into the grits. Pour grits into a lightly greased 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Cool 5 minutes.
