3 cups water
2-1/2 teaspoons salt divided
1 cup hominy grits
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 pound ground pork
1-1/2 teaspoons ground sage
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup DOLE Pineapple Chunks in Heavy Syrup drained
2 eggs


  1. Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan and add 1/2 teaspoon salt, whisk in the grits for 1 minute. Once the mixture returns to the boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Remove the pan from heat and add butter and cheese. Stir to combine. Season to taste with pepper.
  3. Combine pork, sage, remaining 2 teaspoons salt, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, and pepper in a bowl. Mix well with hands. Form patties and cook in a skillet for 5 mins per side or saute pork to spoon over grits.
  4. Add pineapple to a small saute pan and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until golden brown.
  5. Fry eggs to desired doneness (over-easy recommended).
  6. Scoop grits into serving bowl, top with 6 oz of sausage, 1/4 cup pineapple, and a fried egg.
