Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
They’re not the same! Derived from two distinct types of corn, these grains are milled differently, resulting in slight differences in texture and taste.

PREP: 10 mins
TOTAL TIME: 30 mins
Olive oil, for brushing
3/4 cup instant grits
1 cup baby arugula
1/4 cup grated cheddar (2 ounces), divided
Salt and pepper
4 large eggs
Eggs: Versatile, protein-packed, and cheap, eggs make a meal (not just breakfast!) in minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush four 8-ounce ramekins or other small ovenproof dishes with oil. Prepare grits according to package instructions. Stir in arugula and 2 tablespoons cheddar, and cook until cheddar melts, about 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide grits among dishes. Make a well in each, then crack an egg into each well; season. Bake on a rimmed baking sheet, until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 20 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through. To serve, top grits with remaining 2 tablespoons cheddar and a sprinkle of pepper.
