Grits are one of my favorite breakfast staples. Here, I've added eggs and a quick sauté of tomatoes and bacon for a quick and easy brunch. If you'd like, you can prepare it in individual serving bowls so that each guest gets their own dish—it makes for a striking presentation, (and makes serving much more simple).

Tomatoes add sweetness and acidity to the creamy grits and smoky bacon. If you have a few peppers in your fridge, they make a great addition to the mix. Best of all, the whole thing's ready to be eaten in about a half hour.
