365 Days of Bacon - Day #9 Bacon Advent

GRITS!!!

I awoke on Day #9 of Bacon Advent with a serious craving for grits…yeah, you read that right GRITS! While I was in New Orleans last month I had the most amazing grits I have ever eaten, and I have been dreaming about them ever since. The trip to NOLA was called “BESHFEST 2011” and involved eating at as many Chef John Besh restaurants as possible in one week…we did 5 out of 6. I am in the process of writing all about my amazing BESHFEST 2011 eating experiences which I will post here soon. Anyway, Chef John Besh uses McEwen & Sons grits which are made from some sort of magical, organic, stone ground corn and then he and the executive chefs at his restaurants turn them into manna from heaven. No seriously, FROM HEAVEN!!!

The Jalapeno cheese grits at The American Sector (Bottom right) were ridiculously delicious…creamy, cheesy, spicy…amazing!

The grits at Dominica (OK, it was Polenta - top left - topped with Heirloom tomatoes) were truly perfection.

This lovely bowl of buttery grit deliciousness was the last bowl of grits I had in NOLA, on our last day, with breakfast at Luke…and I have been dreaming about grits ever since.

So, Day #9 of Bacon Advent began with a hearty breakfast of eggs over easy, delicious buttery grits, and maple BACON. And while the grits were not “Chef John Besh good,” they were still quite yummy…and the bacon was epic!
