Cheesy Grits with Bacon and a Fried Egg

There is something comforting about a big bowl of grits. Most southerners love grits. My hubby who did not grow up in the South, not so much. You either love them or don’t care for them. They can be very bland if not done right. It takes some love, but isn’t that what a lot of our food is about. Add some butter, salt, pepper, cheese and bacon, then top it with a fried egg…… you have true happiness in a bowl.

This is what you need:

*grits ( I used the quick cooking kind)

*salt, to taste


*white pepper , to taste ( I like using the white pepper rather than black pepper, but use what you prefer)

*shredded cheese ( I used a Colby Jack Cheddar blend)


*canola oil


*cracked pepper

Cook bacon then crumble, set aside.

Prepare grits according to package directions.

While grits cook, heat a small skillet to medium high heat; add oil. When the oil is hot add the egg, salt and pepper to taste.

When grits are done cooking, add salt, white pepper to taste. Stir in butter and cheese. Transfer grits to a bowl. Add bacon on top of grits. There was supposed to be a nice picture of the crumbled bacon on the grits, but needless to say, I was hungry and it was early morning and I forgot to take the picture. So image the nice, crispy bacon nestled on top of the creamy grits here —->

Top with the fried egg.
