Made a delicious and hearty breakfast with scrambled eggs, biscuits, strawberry freezer jam, and fruit. I love grits, and this is a great recipe. Didn't read the recipe and ended up stirring in the parsley and paprika. Good, but next time I will garnish correctly. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was okay. I usually love Paula's recipes. I thought this was a little bland though it was better the next day reheated. I would use spicy breakfast sausage next time. I prefer having grits and sausage separate, but this may be just what you a looking for. Thanks for posting.

We love this. It is certainly comfort food for a cold winter night. We always buy stone ground grits when we get a chance and they really make this dish.

Tagged this recipe for the Easter Egg Hunt 2009. It was a nice change from regular cheese grits casserole. Served with Hopel-Popel. And both were really enjoyed.

VERY rich! I made a couple of changes...one I used 1 can of green chilies and 1 roasted jalapeno for a little heat. The sausage I used was Jimmy Dean's Sage sausage. Times were perfect! Next time I'm going to try it...using only 1/4 cup butter and 1 cup of cheese...hoping to cut down on the fat just a little. Thank you Mercy and Thank you Paula Deen!!

I have made this recipe several times for work "goody days" - it's always the first thing gone!! I usually make it the night before - then get up in the morning and bake it - it's ALWAYS a hit!!

I liked this alot, DH didn't much care for it. I made exactly as posted, only halved it. I was concerned that it would be dry after baking for 1 hour, but I was wrong, it was very moist and very good! Thanks Mercy!

I used a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes instead of the green chilies and used Provolone cheese since that's what I had, but it still turned out really good. I think I like it better the next day, though.

Ive made this many times before. I add a can of Ro-tel instead of the chiles. Too good to pass up!

I always cook rice and grits in chicken broth -- a little more hearty. Did not have breakfast sausage, so used chicken sausage with spinach. Took a little longer to prepare, but was very tasty, even without the Tabasco. Made entire recipe, will serve the 2 of us for 2 more sides. Forgot I had done this before --but just repeated, with bulk Italian sausage, and it is true - FAT tastes GOOD !! DH and I ate almost half -- so will STILL have another meal for the weekend. MY vocabulary DOES have one syllable words ! Had to reduce heat for the last 15 minutes, because the top was scorching. A very versatile and forgiving recipe.
