This is a real southern favorite, a great breakfast casserole, a meal or a side dish. I hope you enjoy it. Note; Batter can be made the day before; covered refrigerate. Let stand 30 minutes before baking.

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
