Bacon Cheesy Grits & Fried Egg  (Breakfast Episode)
Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves 2

Ingredients
3 slices bacon, diced & trimmed of excess fat 1 large shallot, diced
1 ¾ cup of water + ¼ cup milk 1/2 cup corn grits (recommend quick-cooking)
⅔ cup grated cheese of choice (shredded Italian Blend or Cheddar recommended).
handful of fresh arugula
½ tsp. olive oil 2 large eggs salt and pepper to taste

Directions
1) Sauté diced bacon & shallot over medium heat in a frying pan until cooked & lightly brown (4 to 5 minutes). Set aside.
2) Bring the water & milk to a rolling boil in a small saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low, stir in the grits, bacon & shallot. Cover and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until the grits have thickened.
3) While the grits are cooking, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Crack the eggs into the pan, season with salt & pepper, and cover. Cook over medium until the whites are set but the yolk is still soft. Set aside
4) Remove the grits from the heat. Stir in the cheese and arugula. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
5) Spoon the grits into two shallow bowls. Top each bowl with a fried egg.
6) Serve immediately.
