Ingredients

Whole30 breakfast grits:

Other:

  • 1.5 cups diced sausages see notes for Whole30 sausages
  • 8 oz. baby bella or button mushrooms quartered
  • 2 bulbs scallions diced and separate white and green parts
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme optional
  • Extra virgin olive oil drizzle

Instructions

Whole30 grits:

  • Optional step. Sieve through the almond flour first. This will make the grits less gritty.
  • In a medium sauce pot, bring water to boil and season with two pinches of salt.
  • Slowly stream in almond flour, ¼ cup at a time. Whisk constantly over medium-low heat to prevent lumps, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and let the grits sit on stovetop. Cover with a lid for about 15 minutes.

Saute:

  • In the meantime, in a well-heated skillet, saute the sausage with white scallion parts for about 5-6 minutes or until the sausage is perfectly charred. Scoop out the ingredients and leave the oil in the skillet.
  • Use the fat rendered from the sausage to saute mushrooms. Season with 2 pinches of salt. Saute until the mushrooms are tender but not mushy. Scoop out the ingredients. Set aside.

Assemble:

  • Layer a few tablespoons of grits in a single serving bowl. Top with mushrooms, sausages, and green scallion parts. Drizzle with olive oil. Serve warm.
