One of my Favorites

I loved this dish. I'm from Mississippi, so I eat a lot of grits and was anxious to try this. I made it for Sunday dinner and it was great. My husband doesn't really like grits, but he also loved this dish. I will make this a lot. I omitted the hot pepper sauce, but that was the only change I made to this recipe. It is perfect the way it is.

Love IT!

I tried this a couple of weekends ago for my family. It has turned into a family favorite now. I add extra sharp cheddar cheese (only because that is what we love) and it is WONDERFUL! Thanks for the new Sunday morning family tradition :)

Breakfast, just like Grandma's

The hearty dish is complete w/homemade biscuits or toast and jam. My children who are not big fans of "grits" absolutely love this and so do I. Each time I make it, I substitute different types of cheese for a variety. I also use ground turkey sausage. It's reminiscent of those down home breakfasts with Grandma....
