This bowl of Smothered Southern Grits is full of spicy goodness. Bacon, sausage, and vegetables are spooned over Cheddar cheese grits for the perfect meal. The vegetables cook in bacon grease so they have a wonderfully deep flavor, and the sausage gives this dish great heartiness so that it will fill you up. The grits are prepared until they are perfectly creamy, and smothering them in meat and vegetables only makes them better. Try this easy grits recipe the next time you are craving a big bowl of Southern comfort food.
