Recipe Summary

4 servings (serving size: 1 egg and about 2/3 cup grits)


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare grits, combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; keep warm.

  • To prepare eggs, heat a small skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Break 2 eggs into pan; cook 1 minute or until whites are set. Add 1/4 cup ice cubes to pan; cover and cook 2 minutes or until eggs are done. Remove from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 eggs and 1/4 cup ice. Serve eggs over grits. Garnish with black pepper and chives, if desired.

Chef's Notes

Blindfolded eggs are a short-order cook's version of poached eggs. The key is adding the ice cubes to the pan after the egg whites are set.
