My Ultimate Sausage Grits Casserole Recipe

Dinner parties, family gatherings, and extra time at home. All great reasons for you to try my favorite Christmas recipe.

What You Need:

  • 6 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked quick-cooking grits (not instant)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces (divided)
  • 1 pound ground pork or turkey breakfast sausage
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

How To Make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking dish.
  2. Cook sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain.
  3. Cook grits according to package directions. Mix in 1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and butter. Stir until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Beat eggs and stir together with milk. Slowly stir in the egg mixture, then add the sausage.
  5. Transfer to a lightly greased 9″x13″ pan. (Can be refrigerated for up to 2 days at this point.) Bake preheated oven for 1 hour until puffed/set/golden. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake for 2 min. more.
