Easy Cheesy Breakfast Bake

Wow, I can't believe it's been 10 days since I posted a recipe!  I've had a crazy week and a half; with paper deadlines, presentation preparations, and a trip to San Juan Puerto Rico.  It's not like I haven't been cooking and checking out great places to eat either, because I have. In fact, I have a bunch of new recipes and reviews lined up to be posted within the next few weeks.   But first, I want to share a quick meal idea.  This breakfast dish is super easy to make, satisfying, and very filling. I went with parmesan, but feel free to use whatever cheese you'd like. If you're a meat-eater, this would also be great with chopped sausage or bacon mixed in with the corn meal/grits.

  • Any 14 to 24 oz. can of chopped tomatoes (I used Hunt's with herbs)
  • 2-3 cups cooked Yellow Corn meal or White Grits (make sure it's GF!)
  • 3-4 eggs
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4-1/2 cup shredded cheese (your choice)

Cooking Directions
  1. Cook the grits/yellow corn meal according to the directions. Stir in the paprika, sea salt and pepper
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Layer the bottom of a 9" by 12" baking dish with the corn meal
  4. Spoon a wall of chopped tomatoes around the edge of the baking dish
  5. Crack open the eggs over the center of the dish, making sure not to break the yolks
  6. Carefully place the dish in the oven
  7. Cook for 20 to 22 minutes, or until the egg whites are fully cooked
  8. Remove from oven, add a little more s&p, and then sprinkle shredded cheese over cooked eggs
  9. Return the dish to the oven and bake just until the cheese has fully melted
  10. Enjoy your breakfast!

This looks great! I love savory breakfasts and it's been ages since I've had grits.
