Funky Grits

This recipe was handed down to me by my mother-in-law.  The tradition was to eat it for Christmas breakfast but of course I have to bunk tradition and make it whenever we feel like it and tonight I felt like having it for dinner.




  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 1 Cup uncooked quick grits
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 medium green bell pepper
  • 2-3 stalks celery
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 8 ounce package cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


Brown sausage and make grits according to the package directions.


While these are both cooking, dice up the onion, bell pepper and celery and shred the cheddar cheese.


Once meat is browned, remove to a plate and leave a bit of the grease behind in the skillet. Add vegetables as well as a sprinkling of salt and pepper per your taste.  Cook this until the vegetables are wilted and cooked.  Once grits are finished, set aside.


Pull out your crock pot and spray with cooking spray.  Mix together the cooked sausage, grits, cooked vegetables, cream of mushroom soup and cheddar cheese. Cook on low in the crock pot for about an hour but can sit in the crock pot for a few hours if needed.


Great for potluck meals and always is a huge hit.

Enjoy!  T

  1. I used to make a similar recipe to this years ago. Thanks for reminding me to crank it out again. Mine came from prepping everything for a sausage, cheese and Vidalia onion quiche. The cheese was grated the onions were caramelized and the sausage was browned — and all the eggs I Purchased the day before were gone, except one. I just dumped everything into a pot of grits that was ready – I called it ” dirty grits” lol.
