SAUSAGE CHEESE GRITS
1 cup uncooked grits
4 cups water
1 pound pork sausage
1 7-ounce can green chiles
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon ScotchbBonnet sauce or TabascoTM sauce
1 tablespoon parsley
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add grits and water to pot. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes or until mixture thickens. Cook sausage and green chiles in pan on medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until sausage browns.
Combine butter, eggs, cheese, and Scotch bonnet sauce, grits, and sausage/chile mix to casserole dish. Sprinkle parsley on top. Put casserole dish in oven. Bake for 60 minutes at 350 degrees.
1) I don’t know how many grits are in a tablespoon. There are, however, about 20,000 grains of sugar per tablespoon.
2) All you have to do to get grits/tablespoon ratio is to multiply 20,000 (the number of sugar grains in a tablespoon) by the (volume of the average sugar grain/volume of the average grit).
3) Simple, once you’ve measured a grit and a sugar grain with a teeny, tiny ruler.
4) You cannot buy a single grit. It tends to be sold in bulk. The stand unit of measurement for grits is a bowl.
5) You can purchase a single Grit magazine if you really, really want to buy a single Grit.
6) It is easier to eat a single Scotch bonnet pepper than the bonnets women of the Old West wore on their heads, it is much spicier as well. So it’s kinda of a trade off.
