Cheesy Grits w/ Sausage, onion, and bell peppers

Grits! An ultimate comfort food. I started making these a couple years back when I had Calvin. It was a complicated Shrimp and Grits recipe that was really good but really time consuming so I knew it wasn’t going to be made in the future if I didn’t simplify it. I have kept making it and now that it is a simple and yummy grits recipe I stopped adapting it and have been sticking to this recipe for awhile now. What I love about it is that it can be diverse though so feel free to substitute or put your own spin on it so it works for your family.

Cheesy Grits w/ Sausage, Bell peppers, and Onion

  • Grits (I get the quick kind)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups cheese
  • 7 oz smoked sausage, sliced
  • 2 bell peppers- I use 1/2 yellow, 1/2 orange, and 1 Red
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 TBSP butter
  • 3 TBSP flour
  • 2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 t chili powder
  1. Dice all of the vegetables and slice your sausage.
  2. Cook your grits according to the package. I use the 3 cups water, 3/4 cup grits, 3/4 t salt measurement. Once cooked add your cheese and stir till melted in. Set aside.
  3. Cook all your vegetables in a pan- no butter needed.
  4. Once all cooked, melt butter and add flour. Stir.
  5. Add Worcestershire sauce and Chicken broth. and stir till it’s a thick sauce coating the vegetables.
  6. Top your grits with a heaping spoonful of veggies and sausage and sprinkle with cheese if desired.

 

Hope you all enjoy!
