I do not think I have ever seen grits cooked into a baked good. I have to admit, I love my grits in the morning but they are usually served in a bowl and a dab of butter. This is a different muffin dish for sure. More on the savory side and I think I will try it at least once.

So I am a GRITS and I had to click on this recipe just for curiosity. It is a fact that sometimes when you do not have a lot you learn how to put stuff together to make something good. This recipe sounds like that could have been the case. Not sure if I will like it but all of the ingredients make up a good southern breakfast so I have to give it a shot.

Until I watched the video all I could think of was how in the world are grits going to work in a muffin. But it's not like your traditional muffin at all and could very well be my go to breakfast from now on. I just love how simple and super hearty it is and it's got a lot of my favorite breakfast goodies packed into such a little package. Definitely gotta try this one!
