When we have overnight guests, I do my absolute best to plan menus that are made for the people that are visiting. Like I mentioned yesterday, my parents still talk about the lamb chops that we had at one of our wedding parties years ago so I knew that lamb would be a winning dinner. And a few weeks ago my dad commented on the homemade pasta we made that I featured on the blog so I really wanted to make homemade pasta while he was here. My momma loves grits. And crunchy bacon. No matter where we go for breakfast or brunch, 99% of the time she orders grits, bacon and fruit. So that’s just what we had on Sunday before they headed west.
Changes I made to the recipe: I used whole milk instead of half and half and I used regular grits, not quick-cooking (only because those are items I had on hand).
The grits were amazing. Super smooth, cheesy and perfect. I really think using white pepper instead of black pepper makes a world of difference.
I served our grits with bacon (crunchy for Mom), sausage and some fruit.
Now my breakfast this morning seems really boring…
