I love bacon. I love blue cheese. I love bacon and blue cheese together. I've been tweaking this recipe for quite some time, and initially used corn meal, but it was a smidge too heavy. So I tried quick cooking grits and it turned out perfectly. It's a nice afternoon break with a cup of tea on a verandah. Everyone loves it.
