Directions for banana grits recipe

Step 1: Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet. Whisk the eggs and add them to the skillet.

Step 3: Add salt and pepper. Pour 1/2 cup of grits into the egg mixture, give it a quick stir, then add another 1/2 cup of grits to the mixture.

Step 4: Stir in 1 ⅔ cup whole milk. Then add the sugar and stir well.

Step 5: Allow the mixture to thicken for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally until the mixture becomes thick enough to coat a spoon. If you want it thicker, you can continue cooking it under low flame. Add banana slices and breadcrumbs, give a quick stir then off the flame immediately (so the bread crumbs won’t get soggy).

Step 6: Serve the mixture immediately with your choice of toppings!

For a variation, try it with sausage, bacon, or ham slices. You can also add cheese if you like.

1. Top with whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon.

2. Substitute milk with any other dairy-free milk, such as almond milk.

3. Replace banana slices with the same amount of melon slices!

7. If you don’t want to use dairy-free milk (like me), try planta coco milk or any other alternative milk.
