3 tbsp Wheat grits, dry
1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped Collard greens
1 large Egg

Cook the grits according to the directions on the package (mix with 1 cup of water and microwave on high for 1.5 minutes – watch to make sure it doesn’t boil over). Season the grits with butter, salt and pepper.

In a small skillet, cook the egg leaving the yolk runny (if desired).

Warm a half cup of collard greens in the microwave. Spoon the greens over the grits then top with the egg.
