Easy, Very Tasty Recipes made with typical emergency pantry groceries

Justpeace.org has lots of great simple, cheap recipes.  Add a big side salad or load up on veggies to make these healthier, more rounded meals.  I thought this grits casserole recipe sounded really good, interesting at least, and uses ingredients that I have gotten for free from the food bank and still have stored in my cabinet.

Easy Very Tasty Grits Casserole

Put 1 cup uncooked grits in 3 cups boiling water, add some garlic powder or chopped fresh garlic, reduce heat and cook until thick. Remove from heat and add 2 tbspn margarine you can add cheese, or a packet of cheese powder from boxed mac & cheese. Fry some breakfast sausage, ham, or smoked sausage, add 1 chopped onion and 1-2 cans of beans, with their liquid. Place this meat/bean mixture in a casserole pan or cast iron skillet. Add hot sauce or jalapenos if desired. Beat 3 eggs and 1 cup milk together, add to grits and mix well. Pour on top of sausage/bean mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. If you don’t have sausage, make this one with beans only, or use hamburger.
