I did this just a bit differently. I used everything except the processed cheese and instead of putting the egg into the grits, I poached one and put it on top. I'm a huge grits fan and this made a great lunch for me today. Thanks!

If this is the same recipe that I tried at Jenn's brunch I rate it great! I have never eaten grits before and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't enjoy the plain variety but this dish had just the right amount of flavor to make a wonderful side dish that's different at a brunch. Go for it!

I had never eaten grits before and I have now made this recipe 4 times! I don't buy velveeta so I just used all cheddar and it's absolutely delicious!

Wonderful concept, tweaked it a bit by using fresh jalapenos, added parmesan cheese and topped with onion slices. Real stick-to-the-ribs dish, and a pleasant morning wake up.
