Brought to you by got milk? #FoodLovesMilk
No one says no to breakfast for dinner around here. Give us plates of bacon, eggs, pancakes, waffles! Big bowls of cereal! I’m usually down for any of that but I was craving a new kind of breakfast for dinner… something comforting, minus the sugar. This is my take on night cereal (with suggestions from the kids!) – a loaded grits breakfast bowl. One of the biggest debates of 2016 hasn’t been about the presidential election but whether grits are supposed to be savory or sweet. I still don’t know what the big deal is, I like grits both ways. Don’t judge me!
Milk is a must. You need it to make your grits and to top off your breakfast bowl. It is the hero of this recipe.
Bacon is the next hero. And for flavor, green onions + cheese. With Rice Krispies for texture.
When you make a 10 year old pour the milk!
