Cheese Grits and Sausage Casserole

A friend gave me this recipe in 1987. It’s sure to please everyone, even yankees. That is, if you can get them to try it. When my husband came into my family, he would only eat meat, potatoes and green beans. My mother, a wonderful cook, soon had him trying all kinds of new things.  And now, he’ll eat almost anything and loves southern cooking. I think he’ll like this recipe, since the grits are embellished with cheese and sausage. Who wouldn’t?
