Cheesy Breakfast Beans

As you might suspect from the title, this is not really a baking recipe. But it is quite good, and made a great substitute for cheese grits. It is here because I like it. :) It also helps make up for the sugar-shock of having cinnamon rolls for breakfast on other days. :D  I think it would also qualify as a low-carb recipe.

2 spicey sausage patties
1 can Great Norther beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 c water
2 slices cheddar cheese
2 pinches salt

1. Cook sausage in a skillet. I threw them in straight from the freezer with a little water, and crumbled them as they thawed and cooked.

2. Add the beans to the pan with the sausage, and let them sizzle a bit. Stir them around and mash them up somewhat. Add the water, and continue stirring and cooking. You may need more water.

3. Once the beans have become a bit like gravy, drop in a slice of cheese. Break it up and stir until it melts. Do the same with the second slice. Add salt to taste.
