Grits & Sausage Casserole

2 cups water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup uncooked quick grits
4 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1/8 tsp. garlic salt
2 lb. sausage, cooked, crumbled and drained

Bring water and salt to a boil. Slowly stir in grits. Reduce heat to med., cook about 4 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Combine hot grits and cheese, stir until cheese is melted. In a bowl, combine eggs, milk and garlic. Add a small amount of hot grits mixture to egg mixture, stirring to blend well. Stir remaining grits into egg mixture. Add cooked sausage. Pour into a 8 x 12 baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from refrigerator 20 minutes before baking. Bake at 350 for 50 - 55 minutes. Serves 8

Changes - make with bacon or ham instead of sausage.
