Down South Grits are a staple food use primarily for breakfast. We also use them for “Grits and Shrimp” and later on I’ll post a recipe for that for YOU! While working years ago with my Father in his Restaurant he made Grit Cakes for breakfast fare, they were a huge hit with the locals. I often make them at home for my family on a Sunday when I make a huge breakfast/brunch. They are simple and delicious.
Follow instructions on Quaker Instant Grits (it is basically water, butter, milk) cook until almost all liquid has evaporated. Remove from stove top. Grab a 6 count muffin tin and spray with your favorite cooking spray. Now add grits into prepared tin wells filling about 1/2 full, add (pre-cooked) crumbled bacon or sausage to the top of each, add a little cheese (of your choice to the top). Place in a 350 F oven and bake 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let them rest a few minutes. Using a spoon remove and serve.
They’re just scrumptious! Serve with scrambled eggs and some biscuits and jam!
Now, you’ll be a Southerner! Woo-Hoo.
Hope you enjoy them! Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.
