I have lived alone for many years so I learned to cut down recipes for small quantities. You can also use these recipes for larger groups by doubling ingredients.

Grits are always great for breakfast. Serve this at your next brunch, and watch it disappear. It has all the yummy breakfast ingredients people love. Add some fresh fruit and you have a great meal.
