1 can flaky Grands Biscuits
1 1/2 teaspoons Beazell’s Cajun Seasoning
Dash Of Dat Sauce

I will post an exact cost of this recipe as soon as I can. I couldn’t wait to share the recipe though, it was that good.

While on Facebook the other night a recipe really similar to this one was being shared. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to try it. I am always looking for quick and easy recipes that my family will eat.

Of course, I had to tweak the recipe to our liking. I increased the eggs to 6 and used our favorite seasonings. Also, I used sliced Muenster cheese (a staple in our house) and smoked turkey sandwich meat. For the biscuits I had a can of savory cheddar biscuits that I used in replace of plain Grands Biscuits.

This is definitely a keeper recipe for me. Everyone came back for seconds. With so many variations that can be done with this recipe, it will take a while before anyone grows tired of it.

For a vegetarian option, you could use spinach and mushrooms instead of the meat.

This would also make a good, quick supper. Replace the meat with boiled, peeled crawfish tails and a salad as a side dish. Yum

Ham and grits Casserole Recipe

4 cups water
1 cup uncooked quick-cooking grits
2 cups diced ham or sausage, or a combination
1 cup shredded cheese
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon Beazell’s Cajun Seasoning
4 eggs (or 1 cup egg substitute)

Add water to a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir in grits, cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 5 minutes or until grits are thick. Stir occasionally.

Remove from heat, add meat and next 3 ingredients. Gradually add egg stirring well to keep egg from cooking. Stir well.

Pour in an 11×7 glass baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Can be cooked immediately or placed in refrigerator for 8 hours.

This is a huge hit with family and friends. I make this to bring for breakfast at church the night before and place in fridge. That way in the morning while we are getting ready I just have to pop it in the oven.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.
