Southern Breakfast Napoleons Recipe

imageThe best things of the South include grits, bacon, and fresh produce. I love that this recipe feels decadent but only takes minutes to put together. Can’t you just imagine sitting on a New Orleans street after a long night drinking and eating this to counteract the inevitable hangover?

Southern Breakfast Napoleons Recipe

1 egg
3 slices of bacon
1/4 cup quick grits
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup shredded extra sharp chedder cheese
1 cup water
1 cup fresh spinach
6 small mushrooms, quartered
Salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet, fry bacon until crispy. Drain and reserve the drippings. In a sauce pot, bring the water to a boil. Add salt and the grits. Cook according to package directions. In the bacon skillet, saute together the spinach and mushrooms with a bit of the bacon grease. Fry the egg to your desired doneness. (I like over easy.) When the grits are cooked, add in the garlic, cayenne, cheese, salt, and pepper. Mix well until cheese is melted. On a plate, spoon out the grits. Top with the spinach and mushrooms combination. Place the bacon slices and the egg on top of the greens. Though this recipe serves only one, you can multiple it no problem!
