My husband grew up on sausage and grits in the morning. While a microwave sausage patty and instant grits will do during the week, this weekend version is a real treat. It’s good home-cooking, perfect for a cozy family weekend, but pretty enough to serve at a brunch.

This is also perfect for church or potluck breakfasts and lunches. If you’re cooking for a crowd, just double or triple the recipe and assemble in 2 or 3 casserole dishes.
