Grits can be really good comfort food.  Grits casserole elevates them to big-family breakfast.  Start with either the crock pot/slow cooker or stove top method of grits.  Season your grits to taste with salt and pepper.  Then you can add eggs and sausage or bacon and cheese and bake and Mmmmmmmm.  First, add a bit more milk to your basic grits recipe.  For each egg you’re planning on adding, add 1/8-1/4 cup of milk.  For each serving of grits you’ve made, you can add an egg, a piece of two of bacon, cooked and crumbled, or the equivalent of a sausage patty, cooked and crumbled.  (We use turkey sausage and turkey bacon.) Add about about two tablespoons (or more) grated cheese like sharp cheddar, gruyere, or monterey jack per serving.  Mix everything together, and put it in individual baking dishes or one big casserole.  Bake at 375-400 degrees for about ten minutes, until the casserole slightly browns on top.  Serve and enjoy!
