One recipe of Never Enough Thyme's Cheese Grits:

  • cup quick-cooking grits
  • 1 ⅓ cups water
  • 1 tblsp. butter
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • couple dashes garlic powder
  • 2 ½ ounces sharp cheddar cheese grated

For the Huevos:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tblsp butter
  • 4 tblsp salsa or picante sauce your choice of mild or hot
  • 4 tblsp grated cheddar cheese


  • Start by cooking the cheese grits. Follow my recipe in this post: https://www.lanascooking.com/cheese-grits/
  • When the cheese grits are ready, start frying the eggs.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • When the skillet is hot, add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan.
  • After the butter has melted, tilt the pan to distribute the melted butter all over the surface.
  • Carefully crack the eggs into the pan.
  • Cover the pan and cook until the egg whites have solidifed (2-3 minutes).
  • If you like your eggs sunnyside up you can stop right here.
  • If you like them done all the way through, flip each egg over and cook for another minute or so.
  • To assemble your Huevos and Grits, place a ladle of cheese grits in the bottom of a small plate or shallow bowl.
  • Add the fried eggs on top of the grits and spoon a couple of tablespoons of salsa or picante sauce over the eggs.
  • Add some grated cheddar on top.
  • Optionally, you could also toss on a little chopped cilantro.
