Thanksgiving is long gone..well, two days. But at least I don't want to do Holiday Rage when I hear Christmas music or see decorations.
So now, I am looking at more Holiday Recipes!
This year I tried a new dressing that I had seen on Facebook, originally it was from a Southern Living Magazine.
Shrimp and Grits Dressing.
Easy to make is a real plus. Everyone, but me, loved it. I liked it. I didn't tinker with the original recipe, just did it "as is." Very, very unusual for me. But it was a big hit. I found it a tad bland. So the next time I do it, I plan on adding some crumbled bacon and perhaps some jalapenos or just plain green chiles.
Anyone, since I had found it bland, I decided to take the idea and play with it.
I swapped the shrimp for some diced Andoille sausage, added crumbled bacon, jalapenos, and used a cup of shredded Italian cheese blend. Also, I used some Cajun seasoning and increased the amount a bit.
The result is my Sausage and Grits Casserole. I found it much more to my taste. Raphael was voting in favor of the shrimp.
I do think this one is better as a breakfast or brunch casserole, but however you serve it, Its' good~!
And I did some Black Friday shopping via Amazon and got a nice set of Cusinart knives for myself! Wahoooooo
