Up in Newfoundland in 2004, we ate a lot of cod cheeks, moose, and fish ‘n’ chips. However, we never tried “Jigs Dinner,” their traditional dish of boiled corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes. We thought the name was cute, so we modified it for this dish.
Serves 3 hungry Squid-Wagon travelers: Me, Barry, and my Dad.
3 C water
3/4 C quick grits
1/2 t salt
1 oz grated cheese
Bring the water to a boil and slowly stir in the grits and salt and pepper. Let simmer for a couple minutes, then cover and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese.
Poach or fry the eggs and serve them on top of the grits.
