I love cooking breakfast. Actually, I love cooking breakfast on the weekends when time is not a factor. I hate making breakfast during the week. Cooking is one of those areas where I don't respond well to time pressure.
This particular breakfast was a shining example of what I like to eat- layers of yummy things all piled on top of each other, then mixed up and devoured.
Here's the rundown of the dish...
First I made a batch of garlic cheese grits. I use chicken broth as the liquid, and I add a clove of whole garlic (which I fish out before adding the grits). When the grits are creamy and smooth, I stir in as much cheddar as I feel like grating. On this morning, I was energetic and added A LOT of cheese. This is the bottom layer of the bowl.
I fried an over easy egg and perched it on top of the grits.
I diced and seasoned a Roma tomato and sliced half an avocado. Lastly, I sprinkled a crumbled piece of bacon over the whole thing. Oh- and I didn't douse it with sriracha until after I took the picture.
