Grits, a Southern breakfast.

After  spilling my three cups of espresso this morning, I decided that I should fix breakfast instead and leave the coffee alone for a while.

Grits are an easy to make, great to eat morning plate.  Served along side with scrambled eggs and bacon. A true Southern dish. We use Albers. The cook the best, less lumps and flavorful.

One thing we like to do is add lots of butter while cooking. When melted we add the grated sharp cheddar cheese to it.  Mixing it well so it will melt well, consequently turning into a rich flavorful dish.

I will try again to make coffee….
