Southern-Style Sausage & Apples with Cheese Grits
Fresh apples are the perfect addition to rich, cheesy grits and savory Jones Dairy Farm breakfast sausage links. We love this easy recipe for breakfast and brinner.
|2 1/4 cups||
Low Fat Milk
Old Fashioned White Grits*
Garlic, minced (optional)
Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
|1 (5 oz) package|
Large Red or Green Apple, cut into 1/4-inch slices
Pure Maple Syrup
Whisk together milk and grits in a heavy medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over high heat, whisking occasionally. Reduce heat to low and stir in garlic and salt if desired. Cover and simmer 12 to 14 minutes or until thickened, whisking once or twice.
Stir cheese into hot cooked grits until melted.
Meanwhile, heat sausages in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until cooked through.
Add apple slices; continue cooking, turning occasionally, until sausage is cooked through and apple is tender, 2 to 3 minutes.
Drizzle syrup over sausage and apple and cook 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Serve over hot cooked cheese grits.
*For quick cooking white grits, decrease milk to 2 cups and cooking time to 7 to 9 minutes.
