Sunday Brunch: Ham and Grits with Red Eye Gravy

Sunday Brunch

How to make the best meal of the week even better.

Editor's note: Each Saturday morning we bring you a Sunday Brunch recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow.

Ham and grits make an ideal morning after brunch when you've spent too much time on a bar stool the night before. This version of the classic takes ham steaks and dices them into cubes in order to maximize flavorful crisp edges on even the leanest grocery store ham steaks.

On a morning when you're feeling fragile I find that brunch is better delivered ASAP, hence the quick cooking grits in this recipe. But if you're a purist, and not feeling as bad as you'd thought, feel free to take the time and make the classic version.

Either way, have this brunch with some strong coffee and you'll be back in shape in no time.
