Organic Savory & Spicy Grits

From Kristi's Kitchen


1 1/2 c. organic stone ground polenta (grits)
6 c. organic chicken stock, seasoned(season with sea salt, garlic powder & onion powder to taste)
2 tbsp. organic butter
1/2 lb. organic turkey bacon, diced
1/4 -1/2 c. grated organic colby jack OR cheddar (soon to be Beyond Organic Really Raw Cheddar)


-Melt butter in large sauce pot
-Stir in turkey bacon and cook for a minute
-Pour in chicken stock and bring to a boil
-Whisk in polenta and simmer over medium heat for about 15 minutes -until thick, creamy & bubbly
-Stir in cheese until completely melted

That's the "Savory"
To take it to the next level...for the "Spicy"

-Saute diced onions, pablano peppers and bit more of the turkey bacon in a tbsp. of organic butter until veggies are translucent
-Sprinkle over the top of the finished, plated grits with some diced fresh tomato for garnish

*Serve along side a grilled chicken breast and a spinach salad for a hearty lunch OR with a fried (in grapeseed oil) organic egg on top for a delicious breakfast
