Cheesy Breakfast Grits

So so easy and delicious - ok, we complicate slightly but deliciously by adding sausage and a fried egg.

Serves 2

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups water
  • big pinch Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking grits
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I like Monterey Jack, but use whatever you like or have)
  • 6 ounces pork sausage
  • 2 eggs 
  • 2 greens onions, finely chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. Boil water and add salt & grits - stir well and turn down to low
  2. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened
  3. Add butter, milk and cheese, stir until creamy & well combined - cover and keep warm
  4. Cook sausage in a non-stick pan until just no longer pink and keep warm
  5. Cook eggs however you like - over easy, sunny, poached it’s up to you
  6. Put 1/2 the grits into each of 2 bowls and add some sausage, green onions and top with the egg
  7. Boom

WAFFLE EGG IN A HOLE

Makes 1 waffle

What better way to celebrate National Waffle Day than with a waffle that has a fried egg in the middle?

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 ounces of waffle batter
  • 2 tablespoons diced crispy bacon
  • Butter
  • 1 egg
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat waffle iron
  • Spray both sides with non-stick spray, add batter, sprinkle bacon on top and close lid - cook until done
  • Remove waffle and cut a circle out of the center - large enough for the egg to go into band enough waffle left around the edges to hold it
  • Heat non-stick griddle or pan, and add butter
  • When the butter melts, put in the waffle with the cut-out circle beside it
  • Crack an egg into the center of the waffle and season with salt and pepper to taste
  • Cook until the egg is set on the bottom, carefully flip over (along with the cut out circle) and cooked until yolk side is set - remove to a plate along with the circle
  • Cut and eat the egg and waffle together but use pieces of the cut out circle to dip into the yolk
