“Found this in a William Sonoma magazine and it looks so good. Said that this began as a fisherman's breakfast - but where ever it came from sounds great and while I haven't made it yet, wanted to save the recipe here so I can. As an update finally got around to trying this and must say if you like something out of the ordinary this is a breakfast to impress. For the grits, after they were made I added 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to it and allowed it to melt - yum! It's a little more work than every day fare but the taste is something DH and I really enjoyed - hope you do too.”
