Fried Grit Cakes With Eggs and Tomato Gravy
45 mins (prep 30, cooking 15)
13 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is a unique Southern version of Eggs Benedict. It is common where I live for restaurants to serve Shrimp Creole or other dishes on top of fried grit cakes instead of over rice or noodles. The recipe uses leftover grits, but you can make them just for the recipe! Feel free to liven up the grit cakes with additional seasoning! This version of eggs benedict has the eggs served over fried grit cakes with country ham and tomato gravy.
