  • I changed this up just a tad.
    I added just a smidge of chopped fresh tomato after the spinach was cooked, and stirred together.
    Used shredded mozzarella cheese. Shredded it over grit mixture and stirred just to melt a bit.
    I made the eggs over medium, put them on top of the grits! YUM!

  • I love grits, I love spinach. Unable to locate my casserole recipe, I used this for my morning breakfast. Omitted the salt since instant grits are high in sodium. No shredded cheese; used mozzarella stick. A definite keeper! - 7/2/14
