This recipe came from the Jim Dandy Quick Grits bag. I make it Christmas morning every year and we all love it. It can be made a day ahead and refrigerated, just bake a little longer.

This is a great recipe (as long as you don't look too closely at the Nutrition Facts) but it will be very oily if you add the recommended butter.

I make it sans butter now and it turns out much better.

I also reduce the recommended amount of water by a cup or so. This helps allow the grits to absorb some of the oil from the sausage nad cheese, resulting in a much more palatable final product

This didn't really turn out for me. It was pretty runny, and the sausage flavor overwhelmed everything.

This is pretty good. It does reheat well. A 2 quart casserole is not quite big enough.
