Breakfast Casserole

Here is the recipe for our family’s breakfast casserole.  I know there are many variations of this recipe, but this one by far is the best!  It comes from my husband’s family and we make it all of the time!

  • 2 lbs sausage
  • 1 lb shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Brown sausage in a medium pan and split into quarter size pieces.
  3. In another pan, bring water to a boil and add grits.  Cook for 5 minutes
  4. Add cooked sausage, cooked grits, cheese, milk, eggs, thyme and garlic into a mixing bowl.  Combine and mix.
  5. Pour mixture into 9×13 pan.  Optional: Add a thin layer of shredded cheese on top of mixture in the pan.
  6. Bake for 1 hour.
  7. Let sit for 5-10 minutes prior to serving.
