Nice recipe for breakfast for two and very easy and fast to make.
- 3/4 cup water
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 70g cooked ham small diced
- 3-4 slices of bacon small diced
- 1/2 cup yellow grits
- 100-150g old cheddar and Parmigiano cheese
- 1 medium scallion
- Cholula hot sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- Combine the water, milk, butter, salt and pepper in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
- Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat until shimmering. Add the bacon and the ham and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned all over, about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and set it aside.
- Whisk the grits into the simmering milk mixture and bring to a boil. Continue to boil without stirring for 1 minute. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, remove the pan from the heat, and let sit until the grits are tender, about 7 minutes.
- Meanwhile, shred the cheese on the large holes of a box grater (you should have about 3/4 cup). Thinly slice the white and light green parts of the scallion; set aside.
- When the grits are ready, uncover and stir them to incorporate all of the liquid; stir until the grits are smooth. Sprinkle with two-thirds of the cheese and stir until combined and melted. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
- Divide the grits between 2 bowls and sprinkle with the remaining third of the cheese. Top with the reserved ham and scallions and add a few dashes of hot sauce. Serve immediately.

Have just Googled what grits are. I’d heard of them but couldn’t remember. Sounds great for a late breakfast. We don’t have that here. Well, maybe in specialised stores.
You can try it with corn flower (not the instant one though). The results will be the same.
….we just had this delicious dish for breakfast…was very good!!! thank you Doru..you’re the best!!!
