Eggs blindfolded over garlic-cheddar grits recipe-CookingEggs

This was only my 2nd time using grits and both my husband and I loved the outcome. The grits were flavorful (don't skip out on the powdered garlic) and the eggs were perfectly poached. This would make a delicious brunch but we made it for dinner with a few slices of crusty bread for dipping into the egg.


  • 2 1/2 cups hot cooked grits
  • 3 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Cooking spray
  • 4 large eggs, divided
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes, divided
  • Freshly ground black pepper (optional)
  • Chopped chives (optional)

1. To prepare grits, combine grits, cheddar, garlic powder, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl; keep warm.
2. To prepare eggs, heat a small skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Break 2 eggs in pan; cook 1 minute or until whites are set. Add 1/4 cup ice cubes to pan; cover and cook 2 minutes or until eggs are done. Remove from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 eggs and 1/4 cup ice. Serve eggs over grits.
