This recipe came from my friend, Debbie Upshaw.

This casserole is fabulous and full of so much flavor. At first glance, we thought this would be great for brunch or as a side dish. But once we tried it, we realized it would be hearty enough to be a meal by itself too. Rotel tomatoes give a little punch of spice. The grits are creamy and the sausage gives a nice smoky flavor. There's a lot of yumminess in this jambalaya grits casserole recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
