  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • 3/4 cup instant grits
  • 1 cup baby arugula
  • 1/4 cup grated cheddar (2 ounces), divided
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 large eggs

Cook's Note

Versatile, protein-packed, and cheap, eggs make a meal (not just breakfast!) in minutes.


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush four 8-ounce ramekins or other small ovenproof dishes with oil. Prepare grits according to package instructions. Stir in arugula and 2 tablespoons cheddar, and cook until cheddar melts, about 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Step 2

    Divide grits among dishes. Make a well in each, then crack an egg into each well; season. Bake on a rimmed baking sheet, until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 20 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through. To serve, top grits with remaining 2 tablespoons cheddar and a sprinkle of pepper.

    I would think that spinach would be even better to add and
    even more healthy? Looks delish-love grits-didn't know you
    were a Southern gal like I am.
