I like to take along some canadian back bacon (it is basically cooked ,like ham it just needs heating) shred the bacon and mix with eggs and anything else you like, put in a microwave-safe dish and nuke. Stir once or twice while cooking and drizzle with maple syrup before serving.
For the life of me, I can't understand why some dishes sort of stay regional and don't catch on elsewhere, like biscuits and gravy for instance. I was doing a trade show in Indiannapolis when a gent from Texas introduced me to this fine delicacy. He called us Canadians a " bunch of heathens " when he found out you couldn't get biscuits and gravy in Canada. That might be overstated a tad but I DO have chicken and corn bread, and biscuits and gravy for brekky, lunch and supper whenever I'm in the good ole' U.S. of A.

I'm in South Carolina right now, and every morning in the hotel's buffet I see grits. I don't know what to do with them and don't want to be pointed and laughed at, so I haven't tried them!

Another funny thing. You can buy Mott's Clamato juice everywhere, but as soon as you cross the US border, you can't order a Caesar in a bar. Inferior Bloody Marys only! ;)

Mike, if you want to know what grits are, you could basically head down to Stanley Park and scoop a panful of the sand there into a bowl. Very aptly named indeed. Your story about clam is too funny, I was trying to explain to a bartender one time that a caeser is basically a Bloody Mary with clam juice in it and he just kind of looked at me like I had a penis growing out of my forehead.

Take your grits put them on top of your sunny side up eggs mix well with a fork salt and pepper to taste and dig in sopping up whats left with toast. Its great. Thats the way I like them. You could eat them separate if you wanted. :arr

Mike - hope you enjoyed your stay in S.C. and gave the grits a try. I live between Charleston and Beaufort, and one of the specialties around here is shrimp and grits. Awesome if you get someone who knows how to cook it!!!! Hope you got a chance to try those - if not, come on back - you won't be sorry. Lazy Lizard, sounds like you had a bad experience - some one must have tried to slip you some Cream of Wheat!!!:D

This post cracks me up. It would be easy to miss the irony here. And.... as most ironies go outside of the literary world.... I'm fairly sure the author didn't script this one intentionally. Either way, this quote is an elegant exposure of who we are as people.

Heres a breakfast grits recipe from my Dad's family that few others seem to know. Cook the grits, then cut some sharp cheese (Cracker Barrel works good) into small wedges or spikes and poke lots of them them into the hot bowl of grits. Let the cheese melt abit, add salt and pepper and mix it all up with a fork. UMMMM good!

I happen to be a proud Damn Yankee stuck in Virginia, been here going on 29 yrs. now. Grits are not too bad as long as you get them hot, butter and salt them up. Go for the gusto and eat grits.

As far as Canadian bacon, I see no reason for it to exist. It isn't bacon, so why not just call it round ham slices, at least to differntiate it from rectancgular ham products likes SPAM.:prod

The ONLY ones who seem to use the term "Canadian Bacon" is Americans, go figure. In Canada it is called back bacon. Which is what it really is by the way. Also called peameal bacon in Canada.

Also on another note..... Y'all need to switch to the metric system like the rest of the world,
and yes AMERICA is part of the world!!......eh? :kidding

I case you have not guessed I was Canadian born, that's right, I said it!!

Vegas, you got a great dog in that pic, we have one too. But the picture is great, back in the day the Canucks were not allowed to market long necks so all the beer came in identical brown bottles affectionatley called "stubbies". They've been gone for a while now but kind of ages the "Hosers"

Got to love some grits(that's what we call the food and the ladies down here "Girls Raised In The South") Don't dare leave SC without trying our lowcountry favorite shrimp and grits! Then again some fish and grits with tomatoes can't be beat for breakfast.:) Gotta go now....time to put the grits on the stove.
