Just For Old Times Sake

While I was away at school my physical activity went way, way, way up. I had to keep my food intake up just to keep from feeling weary. So, every morning I would have this lovely meal. Breakfast was the best meal of the day. Army dining facilities aren't the best thing around, and even though lunch and dinner can be lacking breakfast is still something that they can't really mess up.

Today after I went running at the gym I decided to make this but only in a healthier version. I used Egg Beaters instead of whole eggs, chicken sausage instead of ham, low-fat cheese, and turkey bacon. Then I threw raw onions all over the grits and went to town.

I LOVE grits. They really grew on me. It was about 15 years ago when I first tried them. Me being a Northern girl had no idea what grits even were other than Flo on the TV show "Alice" used to say "Mel, kiss my grits!"

When I first had them I wasn't impressed, but it was like sushi and it grew on me. I crave them sometimes. Love them with salt, pepper, bacon and butter! Yummmm, butter makes everything taste good. Bless Paula Deen.
