    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    I watched Clair Robinson from TV's "5 Ingredient Fix" make this today and decided I needed to try it. I totally LOVED it. It is so creamy and so good! I couldn't wait and dove right in..... burned my tongue, but soooo worth it! This would be a huge hit at a brunch.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    2. 2
      Brown sausage in a pan. Drain on paper towel and reserve the grease.
    3. 3
      While the sausage is browning, bring three cups of water and one cup of half and half to a boil.
    4. 4
      Pour one cup of grits into a bowl of water and then simply tilt the bowl and pour the water and floating bits off into the sink. Scoop drained grits into the boiling milk/water mixture.
    5. 5
      Whisk boiling grits for 5 minutes and then reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes, continue whisking. Season with salt if you'd like and a few cranks of the pepper mill.
    6. 6
      In between whisks, use the rendered sausage fat to grease 4 large individual ramekins, (gratin dishes or individual cast iron pots work too) and arrange them on a rimmed sheet tray.
    7. 7
      Divide creamy grits between the prepared baking dishes and top each with sausage and grated Gruyere. Make a divot in the mixture to nest the egg.
    8. 8
      Crack an egg into a small bowl and slide into the divot you made. Repeat with remaining eggs.
    9. 9
      Bake until the egg whites are almost, but not fully set, about 10 to 15 minutes. For more well-done eggs, bake until the whites are set.
