Feeding our loved ones a balanced meal is sometimes challenging. It’s especially difficult when our loved ones become picky. For example, instead of worrying if my children had their toast with butter, egg, their milk, etc., I started making this for them, as their morning breakfast. Once eaten, they will have had their grits (carbohydrate), butter (little fat), egg and cheese (protein), and it’s gluten-free.
I’m against children having all that sugar, that the schools serve, as breakfast. In addition to eliminating sweets for breakfast during school time, I also find this helps my children stay focused, and not hyper, throughout the day. 😁 This recipe is for 2 servings. Here we go…..
Step 1 – Start making grits by following grits recipe for 2 servings.
Step 2 – While grits are cooking, beat 2 eggs in a large coffee cup. Put to the side.
Step 3 – Prepare your cheese by shredding 1/2 cup white cheddar cheese (or you can add shredded Italian, or Mexican Cheese). Put to the side.
Step 4 – Now it’s time to temper the eggs. You will have to work quickly on this step. 🙂 After grits are cooked, remove from heat, and add 2 tablespoons of cooked grits and beat very well. Add 2 more tablespoons, beat very well.
Step 5 – Add your egg and grits mixture to grits.
Step 6 – Add cheese. Mix well.
Step 7 – Continue mixing, until everything is incorporated. If grits are too thick, add a splash of milk or water to loosen up, and mix well. If you accidentally add too much liquid, turn heat back on low, and continue mixing, until desired consistency.
You did it! Grits should look like this when done. If they don’t, and eggs look scrambled, please don’t worry. I just started making this dish, to where it looks creamy, and I messed up a few times. I hope that this step by step helped you achieve your goal. Happy cooking!😁
