When cooking for family and friends over the holidays, it’s hard to accommodate everyone’s needs and wants. But we have the solution, and it’s become our family’s Christmas tradition: my Sausage + Grit Casserole. It is a crowd-pleaser, sure to satisfy everyone’s palate, comforting, delicious and, above all, super easy. From my 10-year-old nephew to my 95-year-old grandmother, it is a fan favorite all around…almost as good as all those new gifts!
Have a wonderful Christmas, and cheers to the New Year!
