Grits are a staple here in the south. There is almost not a place around here where you can get a hot breakfast and not get a big bowl of grits on the side. And yes, there are 2 nots in that sentence because Southern grammar is an odd thing.
Of course being keto, I don’t eat those grits but sometimes I would like to have a little something on the side, just so the Southern in me doesn’t fade away like all the fat on my body. I already figured out how to make a keto Chicken Fried Steak with Cream Gravy so I knew this would be the next stop in my journey.
I knew hominy was out as a base so a little research and experimentation taught me that eggs mixed with beef broth made a great substitute. The salt in the broth makes for a taste and texture very similar to the grits I was used to eating. And of course, if I’m going to have grits, I might as well have some fried chicken to go with it. I almost tried to figure out a good keto waffle recipe to go with this meal but decided it was too much trouble. Although now that I am typing these words, chicken and waffles with a side of grits sounds really good so that might be in my future.
