Recipe from my Aunt Connie in Roanoke, VA.
Preheat oven to 350
In a large (5 quart) pot, bring 3 cups of water to a boil.
Slowly stir in 1 cup of instant grits.
Cover, lower heat to a simmer, and stir occasionally for about 5 or 6 minutes.
Stir in 2 cups of grated, sharp, cheddar cheese.
Add a dash of Tabasco sauce and a couple of dashes of garlic salt.
Stir in 2 large eggs, beaten.
Add 2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter.
Stir in 1 pound of cooked sausage (I used Grandma Broadbent's sausage).
Salt to taste
Pour it into a greased baking dish (I used a cast iron skillet), and cook it for 1 hour.
Sprinkle a little bit of grated cheese on top, and put it back in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until it browns a bit.
Let it cool for a bout 10 minutes before serving.
