This recipe is quick and easy to make but the taste is very complex due to the combination of kielbasa, raspberry and cheese.
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. - 20 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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! - 09 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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 - 20 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
