Grits & Poached Egg




When I was a kid my Texan Grandmother would occasionally make grits for breakfast. I wasn’t too excited about them then, preferring the traditional Grandma’s House Breakfast of Special K and Equal. But, when we were in Texas last spring I ordered grits at breakfast and couldn’t believe how long it had been since I’d enjoyed their goodness. Seriously, guys grits are delicious. I’ve been a little obsessed since getting back from Texas, and this is one of my favorite breakfasts with grits.

Chopped Onion
Chopped Tomato
Choped Spinach
Poached Egg
Smoked Paprika

Cook the grits & stir in some cheese.
Poach the egg.
While the egg is poaching, spoon the grits into a bowl and top with the vegetables.
Add the egg on top and dust with smoked paprika.


Baked Eggs in Ham Cups




I discovered this little trick for making eggs years ago, when I could barely turn on the stove. It’s a fun way to serve breakfast for a crowd, because all the eggs cook at once, and the ham cups make it fun. I made this for my Mom for breakfast (hence the break from our usual Corelle dishware) alongside roasted potatoes and peppers.

Thinly sliced ham
Cheese (optional)
Choppped herbs or other seasoning (optional)

Using a standard muffin tin, arrange the ham slices to cover the insides of each cup.
Crack an egg inside each cup.
Sprinkle with cheese and other seasining.
Bake in a 350 degree oven until eggs are set.

For these, I used some chopped rosemary and thyme.
Play around with different cheese and seasoning.
