Grits, Spinach, Prosciutto, Fried Egg

Last night’s dinner was an improvisation. As with all good improvised meals, it ended topped with a fried egg.

It began with grits, mixed with some shredded cheddar. I don’t know why I don’t make grits more often, especially for breakfast. They cook up quickly, and I like them better than most other grains. To cook grits, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add a healthy pinch of salt. Lower the heat and whisk in 1 cup of grits. Stir frequently until the water is absorbed, 10-15 minutes. Add some grated cheese, if you like (I like).

Top a scoop of grits with some sauteed onion and prosciutto, a handful of chopped fresh spinach and the fried egg. It’s a yummy breakfast-for-dinner quick meal.
