Cheesy Cajun Grits and Spicy Sausage
If you are a mom like me, you understand that time is not always on our side. We have to be mom, superwoman, playmate, maid and most of all the chef. I love cooking, but I don’t always have the time to cook an elaborate meal to feed my family. I have come up with an easy recipe that would sure hit with your family.
In a medium sauce pan, add your water, chicken broth, and butter and bring to a boil. Once water is boiling, add in your onion powder, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, and creole seasoning. While water is boiling, add in 2 cups of grits and stir until grits adsorb the water. Once grits have thicken cover your grits and cut your temperature to low and simmer.
*Tip for cooking grits, use a whisk to stir your grits. Also add water every 4 to 5 minutes to loosen your grits and to keep from lumping.*
Once your grits become smooth (no grainy texture), its time to make them creamy and cheesy. Add in one cup of milk and stir. You will notice your grits instantly become creamy. Add in pepper jack cheese, and Gouda cheese and stir. Cover and cut your grits on warm.
In a medium skillet on medium heat, add a little olive oil and saute your onions, peppers, and garlic. Once veggies are soft add in your sausage and cook until brown. Once you sausage is done you are ready to eat.
