Grits and Sausage Casserole

Never had grits? This would be a great place to start…

1/2 lb. turkey breakfast sausage
1 1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. water
3/4 c. quick-cooking grits
3/4 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 tspn. garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Dash of ground red pepper
3 egg whites
Cooking spray

Preheat over to 375 degrees.

Cook sausage in a skillet until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain and set aside.

Combine milk and water in a saucepan and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Stir in grits, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 7 minutes or until thick, stirring frequently.

Combine grits, sausage, cheese, salt, pepper and garlic in a bowl and set aside.

Beat eggs whites on a high until stiff peaks form. Gently stir 1/4 of egg whites into grit mixture. Gently fold in remaining egg whites.

Spoon mixture into a casserole dish that has been coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.

What did the family think? Hubby and I love this dish. It is a great way to have breakfast for dinner. 🙂
