Grits and Eggs

This is a fast and easy recipe, high in flavor and protein.  If you want to make shrimp grits you could substitute the egg with shrimp and add some finely chopped Spanish chorizo,  but don’t forget the garlic!


1-2 envelopes instant grits

Water, according to instructions on packet

1/4 tsp Minced garlic (optional)

1 egg

1/4 cup shredded cheese

  1. In a bowl*, mix the grits with water according to the package directions.
  2. Stir in the garlic
  3. Break the egg into the center of the bowl.
  4. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top to completely cover the egg.
  5. Microwave for 2-4 minutes according to the power of your microwave and how hard you prefer the egg to be cooked.

*The grits will expand in the bowl as the mixture heats, so make sure to use a bowl big enough that it doesn’t boil over.
