Sausage N' Cheese Grits Casserole

Just know this recipe takes 1.5 hours to cook start to finish! But its worth it! It's very good!


  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup quick cooking grits
  • 1 cup egg beaters (or 4 eggs)
  • 1 lb Italian turkey sausage (4 links), browned
  • 1 cup fat free shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter (I used Promise Heart Smart spread)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350, and spray a 9x13 casserole with cooking spray
  2. Bring the water & salt to a boil in a medium pot.
  3. Add the grits and cooke 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir a small amount of grits into the egg beaters and then add egg/grit mixture to the pot with the rest of the grits.
  5. Add sausage, cheese, milk and margarine and stir.
  6. Pour mixture into baking dish and bake 1 hour.
  7. **optional** you can add another 1/2 cup shredded cheese on top before putting it in the oven. I omitted this.
I made 6 servings, but it's probably enough food for 8!
