If your only experience with grits is the kind that comes with shrimp, let this recipe expand your horizons. The cornmeal porridge makes for a creamy and comforting first meal of the day—just ask any Southerner. It pairs well with many of your favorite breakfast foods, too, but especially bacon. Which is why we’re not only topping it with crumbles of the crispy meat, but also with a spinach and potato hash that’s infused with porky flavor from the drippings.
