Baked Egg Casserole

December 29, 2010
from The Kitchens of The Food Channel
Makes 4 Servings (or double the recipe and freeze the rest for later) Total Time 45 Minutes 6 Ounces hot maple flavored pork sausage (Southern style), crumbled 3 Cups water 1 Cup half-and-half Kosher salt 1 Cup stone-ground grits or course polenta Freshly cracked black pepper 4 Ounces grated Gruyere 4 Eggland's Best eggs Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cook the sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until cooked through. Remove the sausage to a paper towel to drain. Use the rendered sausage fat to grease 4 large individual ramekins, (gratin dishes or individual cast iron pots work too) and arrange them on a rimmed sheet tray. In a large saucepan, over medium heat, bring the water and half-and-half to a boil and season with salt, to taste. Rapidly whisk in the grits. Continue whisking while returning to a boil, about 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until thick and creamy, stirring frequently, about 20 minutes. Season with pepper and more salt if needed. Divide the cooked grits between the prepared baking dishes and top each with cooked sausage and grated cheese. Make a divot with the back of a spoon into the cheese and sausage topped grits. Crack eggs, one at a time, into a small bowl and top the ramekins with the eggs. Bake until the egg whites are fully set, about 15 minutes.
