Savory Grits Breakfast...or lunch...or serve it with a salad and call it dinner
This is simple enough I won’t even bother typing a recipe. It’s hot and filling and wonderfully comforting, especially on a cold winter morning.
Fix yourself a couple servings of grits according to the directions on the box. White, yellow, quick, original…your choice.
While they’re cooking, sauté a couple big sliced-up mushrooms in a skillet. Add some garlic, crushed tomatoes, herbs, salt & pepper, or a bit of pasta sauce if you have some in the fridge. Or use the mushrooms & garlic by themselves, that would be great too.
Poach a couple eggs.
Split up the grits into two bowls, top with the mushroom mix, top with an egg or two.
Make a vegan breakfast by skipping the eggs.
250-300 calories per serving, with one egg, depending on how large a portion of grits you use.
