Ham And Cheese Quiche With Grits Crust

grits quiech 001

Does that look good or what!

With having our chickens back, we have been enjoying more quiche lately! When granddaughter came for her birthday, I had one made as I knew they would be here early with empty tummies. Daughter Michelle, had spent the night and she along with Husband and myself dug into it before the crew got here. When birthday girl showed up with her gang, Andy spied the pie sitting on the stove and said that it looked awfully good as he was practically drooling over it and with that the three of them dug in. Okay, now I’m down to one generous piece left that I was going to save for Kenny and I for lunch the following day, NOT! With the last of the family showing up around lunch time, I had yet to put up the quiche, and our other granddaughter’s boyfriend, made it disappear in no time………. I just don’t understand where the saying, REAL MEN DON’T EAT QUICHE!, comes from as there were three of them here and they all had their fair share and then some!!

Who took my fork???

Who took my fork???

With no quiche left for us, I had a mental plan to make another one real soon and it was then that I decided to use cooked grits for the crust. What more could you ask for, ham, eggs and grits all in one tasty dish? Sounds good, right? So with that I give you my recipe that can be altered with your favorite breakfast meat and cheese…

Ham And Cheese Quiche With Grits Crust
  • 1 cup regular cooking grits not instant
  • 4 cups water
  • ¼ teas salt
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • ½ cup of diced onions
  • 4 oz grated cheddar cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  1. Bring water to a boil with the salt and butter; slowly stir in grits, reduce heat immediately to low and cover. Watch grits to make sure they don't boil over as they do tend to do this at times especially with a glass top stove.
  2. Let grits cool slightly and then press them into a quiche dish to form a nice crust. Some grits may be left over depending on the size dish you use.
  3. Sprinkle ham over crust and top with cheese.
  4. Whisk together the eggs, heavy cream and seasonings.
  5. Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 300 degrees and continue to bake for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Let cool just slightly before cutting.

If you don’t have one of those men I was talking about earlier, you know the kind who think real men don’t eat quiche, serve this one up for a tasty breakfast treat on Father’s Day this Sunday, enjoy!

Kenny’s Kiss My Grits & Burger Breakfast Biscuit

Yesterday I turned Kenny loose in the kitchen again, oh boy! I knew what he was planning as I had to make the grits ahead of time so they would stick together in order to be fried, of course that is an option as you could put a helping of fresh cooked grits on this sandwich and it would still be yummy, a little messier but still yummy! Another substitute you could do, would be to make up some pork sausage patties versus the burger as I know a lot of people shy away from ground beef these days. He made enough to make 4 biscuits and let me tell you, one was all I could eat although my mouth was watering for more; they were just that scrumptious and filling! So with that, Herrrre’s Kenny……

Hey ya’ll…Hope everyone is having a great Thursday. Ya know it’s so close to WEEK_END it makes ya a little crazy. That’s why I was sitting and it dawned upon me that no one has put grits on a breakfast biscuit..not that I could find anyway. SOOO..I got together with my better half and we concocted this awesome breakfast sandwich.

One problem I had was keeping the egg in the onion…

See what i mean...How do you keep the egg in the damn onion?

Then about half way threw this awesome recipe..I told Wify we have earned a little nip for this venture….

After about three of these...that sandwich started to look pretty damn good..If i do say so myself!

And moving forward…This is a very filling breakfast sandwich and as you know I had to have Mayo and Ketchup on mine. Now, don’t wait to long before you try this…Toooo many of those little nippers will start a kitchen up with ya!  ;-)

That's a whole lotta good eaten right there!

Kenny's Kiss My Grits & Burger Breakfast Biscuit
  • 1 cup precooked grits
  • 4 sweet onion rings about the size of a biscuit and cut about ⅓ of an inch thick
  • 3 eggs, whisked with desired amount of salt and pepper
  • 4 slices of bacon cut in half, cooked crisp
  • ½ lb ground beef (or breakfast sausage)
  • 2 slices of American cheese
  • 4 fresh baked biscuits
  1. Divide grits into 4 patties and brown in a little of the bacon drippings on both sides. Set grits aside and keep warm with the cooked bacon.
  2. Divide ground beef (or pork) into 4 patties and cook in same pan as you cooked the grits until well cooked.
  3. Meanwhile, in another frying pan with a light coating of bacon drippings, place onion rings and brown a little on both sides.
  4. To the onion rings, divide the beaten egg evenly into each slice (egg might run over the top or under the bottom of the onion a little depending on size eggs used and how even you slice the onion as seen in pic!) and cook until fairly set, flip and continue cooking until egg is done.
  5. When eggs are almost done, top each with1/2 slice of cheese to melt.
  6. Stack each biscuit with an egg, burger patty, grit patty and top with two bacon slices.


I’m still trying to figure out why I put this recipe in instead of husband, all I did was make the grits! Enjoy…………
