This quick egg and grits dish is perfect for breakfast or brunch and has the decadent feel of its inspiration without butter or cream.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

Cook's Notes

The eggs became leathery at that high heat, so I cooked the next time for only 10 minutes. Still leathery. Now I just poach an egg, and place it on top.

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.
