I just couldn't stop eating this! It was fabulous! The only change I made was to use Cherry preserves instead of Raspberry, and it worked very well. Easy too! Thank you so much for the tasty recipe.

I was pretty skeptical when I read this recipe, but the solid marks from the reviewers convinced me to give it a try. I didn't have raspberry preserves, so I used cherry (and I was missing the mushrooms)but it turned out great. I don't like grits, but my husband does, so I made this for his birthday breakfast. Everyone looked at their dishes with a strange expression as I put it on the table, but once they dug in, they all liked it... including me!

I made this last night and it was delicious. I used fresh kielbasa rather than smoked and I omitted the mushrooms and the raspberry preserves because I didn't have any on hand. The flavors in the dish would have lent themselves quite well to the raspberry preserves as long as the preserves weren't too sweet. I would add them if I made this dish again. The cheese grits were great. The milk really adds a lot of body to them. I was nervous about boiling the milk so I heated it on medium until it just started to bubble then I added the grits and stired constantly. This worked just fine. The timing worked out nicely as well, because I was stirring the grits while the sausage was reducing

A great combination of flavors and quick to prepare. Being from the South we love our grits and this is an excellent way to prepare them. I also like that the ingredients are ones that I normally have on hand.

ALright, I will say the recipe does sound bizzare, but how soon do we forget the KEY ingredient in cocktail little smokies, or even cocktail meatballs is GRAPE JELLY. Why would this be any better/worse? Certainly it was WONDERFUL with the kielbasa. Be careful with the type of sausage you chose-(did not like with maple sausage), but with "normal" smoked kielbasa was great. I used two kinds, it was what I had. As we gobbled...it really reminded me of the little smokies served for appetizers...why not just throw out the grits and use this for your next appetizer?? I could take or leave grits...I'm a northerner, harder to find here anyway.

I was a little leary about adding sweet preserves to a dish like this, but it was actually pretty good. I didn't have raspberry preserves so I substituted chopped cherry jam, which tasted fine. The sausage mix went well with the grits. (I may have had a different type of grits, but I needed to add quite a bit more liquid.) I also added some butter,pepper and a little salt to the grits. I would make this again.

We tried it last night. We did not have raspberry preserve, we used Key Lime Jelly. We also needed to cut the kielbasa slices in half. We just loved either way.
