Get Creative with Cheesy Grits
I love cheesy grits. My all time favorite hangover/comfort food is cheesy grits with a poached egg. It’s like a hug in a bowl. It’s great when you’re sick too.
Yum. Look at that egg! It’s like butter. I will have to show you guys how to do a poached egg. It’s not hard with practice.
Oh wow. You can even add roasted vegetables to it. See my post on how to roast vegetables.
Or just throw some chili in there. Why not? Lets get crazy! Get my Chili recipe.
Delicious. Now I use quick cooking grits (I know it’s cheating, but they are so fast!). Then I add about a cup of cheddar cheese to the grits once they are done.
