Heart SAUSAGE & GRITS... yummy!

This recipe is awesome. The is a great for breakfast or brunch which you are having company over or just for your family.

1 cup uncooked grits
2 cups grated Cheese
1 pound ground sausage
10 dashes Tabasco
1 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon paprika
two 4.5 ounce cans green chilies, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cook grits in 4 cups salted water until thick. Saute sausage, breaking it into small pieces. Saute onion in sausage fat; drain. Add onion and chiles to sausage. Add butter, eggs (slowly, so you don't cook them), cheese and Tabasco to grits. Combine grits mixture with sausage mixture. Pour into a 13x9 inch casserole dish and garnish with additional cheese, chilies, paprika and parsley. Bake for 1 hour. Can be refrigerated up to 2 days before baking. Freezes well.

I blogged about it last year when Christmas was approaching and we were having our first snow of the season... pictures are included for those of you who eat with your eyes first . You can see that post HERE.

It is super delicious! ENJOY!
