Sausage Tomato and Cheese Grits Casserole - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Sausage, Tomato and Cheese Grits Casserole is wonderful for breakfast along with eggs or make it for a main dish for dinner and serve with a green vegetable.  We like grits anytime.  They can be served so many different ways and are a staple in most Southern homes.

Sausage, Tomato and Cheese Grits Casserole Ingredients Needed:

Pork Sausage

Grits, (can be regular or the quick-cooking grits)

Onion

Green pepper

Salt

Black pepper

Minced garlic

Butter, melted

Diced tomatoes with green chilis

Shredded cheddar cheese or cheese of your choice

We recently remade this dish so we could update this recipe and it’s fantastic. We love it topped with a fried egg and this dish reheats really well. Great to make at the beginning of the week and have each morning for breakfast. It would also be a great addition to any brunch or a holiday weekend. The flavor is wonderful and if you wanted to add some heat to this casserole you could always make it with spicy sausage.

Possible substitutions:

  • You could use smoked sausage, Italian sausage, andouille sausage or spicy sausage
  • If you are not a fan of green chilies just use diced tomatoes
  • Switch up the type of cheese

If you love grits like we do, you will also love this Shrimp and Grits dish. It has wonderful reviews and is a southern classic!
