    This is an absolute favorite comfort breakfast item at our house. The recipe is great as is. For our family, I extend it a little by using a full cup of grits to 4 c. water. I add a little more evaporated milk, cheese, and an 1 additional beaten egg. Instead of hot sauce, I frequently add 1/2 - 1 4 oz. can of diced green chilies — amount depends on whom I am feeding. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

    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
