In the South, we absolutely love a good ole fashion southern breakfast after all it’s the most important meal of the day. Since the weather is cooling down and the days are getting longer, one must start their day with a balanced breakfast. As southerners we don’t always necessarily eat the cleanest, but we do eat some really delicious meals. In the post I have decided to cook a breakfast filled with Southern staples; grits, liver pudding, and delicious, cured bacon. Keep reading for the step by step recipe and the finished meal.
If you aren’t familiar with grits they are the breakfast of Southern Champions…lol! Grits, are derived from corn and they are seasoned with butter, salt, and pepper. NOT SUGAR, if you eat sugar in your grits that’s a cardinal sin and you should probably just be eating Cream of Wheat.
The first step in cooking grits, is boiling water and adding butter.
Allow your grits to cook for about 15-20 minutes while stirring briskly.
You will want to stir your grits until they come to a thickened consistency. The thicker the grit the better!
Next, this is liver pudding, it’s another southern staple. I’m not really sure what’s in it, but it’s quite delicious and has a nice bite to it. We don’t ask a lot of questions, we just eat..lol!
Add about a teaspoon of oil to your pan, and allow your liver pudding to cook until it begins to come out of the casing.
Once your liver pudding is completely out of the casing, it is ready to serve.
Lastly, no Southern meal would be complete without fresh and crispy bacon. This particularly bacon is cured, smoked pork belly bacon, straight from the butcher.
The bacon speaks for itself…it’s Bacon People YUM!
Here is your good ole southern breakfast, feel free to add orange juice, coffee, and if you’re really Southern have some sweet tea.
Remember ya’ll not everyone in the South eats fried chicken, but if you fry it just right. We won’t turn it down!
