This exact recipe is printed on the side of a box of Alber's brand Grits. It's delicious, easy to make and filling. I used this recipe for the sausage: Recipe #100408 and cooked only eight ounces. A full sixteen ounces would dominate the dish. Fresh whole milk instead of canned and Tabasco jalapeno sauce. (If making for adults only, I would add fresh minced jalapeno.) Garnished top with green onions. ~Tasty Dish~ and hubby approved! thanks, cg
