Cheese and Sausage Grits

(from Colorado Cache cookbook)

1 lb regular sausage, browned

Tabasco sauce to taste

1/3 clove garlic, minced

1/2 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1 cup grits (regular, not instant)

5 cups water

1 cup grated extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

1/4 cup butter, melted

2 large eggs, well beaten

1 8-oz can mild green chiles, seeded and chopped (I buy the canned, already chopped chiles)

Brown sausage and drain. Add Tabasco, garlic, salt, and pepper to sausage. Set aside. Cook grits in boiling water, whisking frequently. Add all ingredients together, stirring until well mixed. Pour mixture into a well buttered 9 x 13 x 2 baking dish. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for one hour.
