Italian Sausage and Grits

A heaping bowl of corn grits can be a tasty, filling and inexpensive meal. You can make grits for breakfast, lunch or dinner and serve it with just about anything from bacon and eggs, to shrimp, pork and vegetables. I like my grits with lots of cheese and served with spicy sausage. Check this recipe out below and feel free to mix it up and make this recipe your own.
