It’s National Grits for Breakfast Day, so I’m making Cheesy Bacon Grits. I love grits! Whether it’s yellow corn grits or white corn grits, sweet or savory they are amazing for pretty much any meal. Usually when I have them for breakfast I have them with a little bit of butter and brown sugar, but for this holiday I decided to kick it up a notch and add some cheese and bacon to make it undeniably awesome.
