Cheesy Grits and Eggs
This is one of my favorite breakfasts. Unfortunately, Dave isnt a big fan of grits or polenta... so I only have it when he is away.. or isnt hungry for breakfast. The latter was the case this morning... so yay for me! ;-)
I tried making my eggs a different way this morning, instead of frying them... I got the Silver Spoon cookbook yesterday, and in it is a recipe for "shirred" eggs. Basically just stick the eggs in the oven at 325 for 5 mins and voila. I think they produced perfectly shaped and cooked eggs!
For the grits-
half a cup of grits (or polenta... but grits are better =P)
2 cups of milk
a knob of butter
cheese (about half a cup shredded... I used glouster and parmesan today)
3 chopped scallions
dash of garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
Cook the grits and milk with onion and garlic powder until they start to get creamy. Add butter til melted. Add cheese til melted. Salt & pepper to taste. Serve with eggs on top!
