Easy Cheesy Loaded Grits
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 50 min. + standing
This was a tasty dish on a cool evening. It turned out a bit runny so I will have to try to eliminate some moisture next time.
We "Northerners" loved this recipe! I had to adjust it a little to use what I had on hand. I only had 1 (4oz.) can of green chilis so I used a drained (10oz). can of diced tomatoes and green chilis. I also used shredded sharp cheddar and Parmesan. I also had about a cup of TOH's Sriracha corn leftover so I tossed that in. My sausage was homemade chorizo. Will definitely make this again.
This is basically a good recipe with a little tweaking. I omitted the butter as I felt it had enough oil in it from the sausage and the cheese. I like heat but family doesnand#039;t so just added 1 can of green chiles instead of 3. I did use the hot sauce as stated in the recipe. To cut down on calories I cut the cheese in half and it was very cheesy and adequate.
I made this casserole for a Bible study group and it was well received; even by folks (including me) who are really not "lovers" of grits! I only used 1 can of chilies and took hot sauce, sour cream, and cilantro along with me so folks could add individually. Did not add hot pepper sauce; paprika or salt to the casserole. A 1-cup serving size is not quite enough for me!!!
What an outstanding recipe! The grits are creamy, cheesy, and absolutely delicious! Although I cut the recipe in half for the two of us and we both had second helpings, I was happy that we still had enough leftovers for another meal. A new favorite and something I plan on making often!
Hi Cooksuk! Grits are also called Polenta. Don't use corn bread mix or corn flour. Excellent recipe. I usually eat Polenta for breakfast with a little melted butter and small amount of heated maple syrup. This is dinner! Thanks!!
Hi Cooksuk,Grits are white hominy ( corn) kind of like corn bread mix I think..it may be called something else in the UK..
What are grits (for those in UK) ? Sorry can't really rate as haven't made. Wish you didn't have to rate to submit a question!
This is a must try recipe! Made as written or with modifications it is a great anytime-meal and just as great the next day. For my spicy-loving family, used hot bulk sausage. Amount of cheese can be greatly reduced and still be fabulous! As a volunteer food editor with Taste of Home I enjoy recipes that are versatile and can feed a large family.
We devoured this and makes a great leftover since there is 2 of us. We used andoullie sausage instead.
