Baked Grits & Eggs with Spinach & Fresh Herbs

Breakfast.  Often a highlight of the weekend.  Preparing fresh dishes when I have time to thoughtfully consider the ingredients is so rewarding.  It’s my creative outlet for certain.  This morning we had Baked Grits & Eggs {with Spinach & Fresh Herbs}.

Baked Grits & Eggs with Spinach & Fresh Herbs

I made a batch of grits, added some cheeses (Laughing Cow Light Garlic & Herb and a little shredded cheddar), then stirred in a handful of fresh spinach leaves, and some chopped fresh herbs (lemony thyme, tarragon, and sage).  The grits on their own were so tasty.  Not sure why I don’t add fresh spinach & herbs….always.  When ready to assemble, I spooned grits into oiled ramekins, made a well in the center of each and added an egg.

The grits and eggs are baked at 400 degrees for 20 minutes until the whites are set.  A final sprinkling of cheese and salt & pepper and you’re ready to enjoy this carefully thought out and freshly delivered breakfast of Baked Grits & Eggs with Spinach & Fresh Herbs.
