Savory Grits with Beets and Bacon

Southern cooking with a foodie flare!

I grew up on cream of wheat and it was probably one of my favorite warm breakfasts. It took me a while to get into grits but now I really love this healthier option! Of course I love cheesy shrimp and grits with bacon crumbles, but I wanted to try a different way of cooking with grits for breakfast.

Savory Over Easy Egg and Beet Bacon Grits recipe

Grits are an easy filler to dress up. These eggs and grits are topped with beet and bacon bits for a truly delicious and savory breakfast! If you like the idea of pairing eggs and beets I suggest checking out this recipe too!

I started off by peeling and dicing a red beet. Next, chop some bacon to the same size pieces. Drizzle a little oil in to a pan and sauté the beet and bacon bits on medium-high heat. When they are almost done crack the eggs in.

I warmed up the grits in a separate pot while the beets and bacon were cooking. I suggest making your grits with a little milk rather than just water. This makes it creamier! Once everything was ready I placed the grits in a bowl and covered them with the egg. Top it off with the beets and bacon and then dig in! I suggest an over easy egg so the runny yolk will soak in to the grits.

    I just picked a bucket of beets from my garden and was feeling uninspired be them… but this sounds amazing! You just helped me figure out what to do with them 🙂
