Swirled with spinach and topped with fresh herbs, this skillet sausage, egg, and cheese grits breakfast bake will delight your friends and family! And even better? This brunch bombshell of a breakfast casserole can be made in advance!
Have half and half handy? Awesome! If not you can make your own by combining 1/2 cup cream with 1/2 cup milk. You can also use 1 cup of heavy cream instead if you'd like.
For the cheese, feel free to use a combination of any cheeses you have on hand! My default is white cheddar and gouda but a number of cheeses would compliment the flavor of this dish! Freshly grated is best flavor-wise but in a pinch you can totally use pre-shredded cheese.
