Bacon, Eggs & Cheese Grits

  • 1 cup grits
  • 1/4 cup margarine (half a stick)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 6 to 8 ounces bacon
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1 cup milk

Take out a 3 or 4 quart sized saucepan. In it, combine the grits, margarine, water and salt. Bring it to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer the grits for about 10 minutes. They will be thick and a little creamy. Immediately stir in the cheese until it melts.

While the grits are cooking, fry up your bacon until it is nice and crispy. Allow it to drain a little bit on some paper towels or a brown paper bag. Then crumble it up. Stir it into the grits after stirring in the cheese. While the grits and bacon are cooking, combine the eggs and milk in a bowl. Mix them up until the eggs are completely emulsified with the milk. Stir this mixture into the grits mixture last. Beat it quickly so the eggs aren’t tempted to cook in the hot environment of the cooked grits. I use a whisk to be sure everything gets mixed up just right.

Turn the grits, bacon, eggs and cheese into a well oiled 9 by 13-inch pan. Bake at 350F for 20 to 30 minutes. Serve hot with fresh fruit and plenty of coffee. This can be served for breakfast or for lunch. Either way it serves 8 folks heartily.
