Stuffed poblano peppers with cheesy sausage garlic grits. Wrapped peppers in bacon. On the small @ 350 for 1 hour. Added sausage to egg and cooked for 15 minutes. Served with Meyers sausage and salad (not pictured). Turn out pretty good. Chief taste tester said they were a keeper.

    Me, too, Faith. After a couple of surgeries a few years ago, they couldn't get me to eat anything buy my wife's home made grits. I live on'em for about 2 weeks. Still my favorite.

    Molly, I like garlic, you may want to use less if you are not a garlic eater.
    It didn't have an overpowering garlic taste stuffed in the pepper, but I fried up the leftover grit mixture this morning and it was good, but garlicky and the sausage really came thru. I may have a new garlic cheese grits casserole cook. :)

    OK just for you. Trying to talk Chief Taster into going to Texarkana and cooking. I so sure I can talk him into it I have already requested vacation days. :whistle:
    Do you know what is the last day you can register to cook?

    Thanks. LLoyd is not much of a grits eater unless there is maple syrup near, but he inhaled these and never once reached for the syrup

    Great. I hope you can make it to Texarkana. Since it is the first year I don't have a clue about the cooking...seems to me if someone wants to feed us something good it would be wise to do it.
