Number of Servings: 2


    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 precooked chicken sausages, thinly sliced on diagonal
    1/2 bunch asparagus, tough ends removed, cut into 1-inch lengths
    2 teaspoon fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried
    2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    Coarse salt and ground pepper
    3/4 cup grits or yellow cornmeal
    1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese


Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high. Cook sausage until browned, tossing occasionally, 1-2 minutes; transfer to plate.

Add asparagus to pan, saute for 1 minute. Add thyme and 1/3 cup water. Cover and steam until asparagus is just tender and water has evaporated, about 6 minutes. Add sausage and lemon juice, toss. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups salted water to a boil (more if you like looser grits), and gradually whisk in grits. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 6 minutes. Stir in cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with sausage and asparagus over grits.
