1. In a cereal bowl, dice a small tomato. Home-grown, garden-ripened with a higher acidic content works best. In this case I just used cherry salad tomatoes from the store, cut in half.
2. Add two packets of Quaker Instant Grits with Bacon Flavored Bits. (Yeah, blasphemous to most true Southerners.)
3. Add enough butter to make everything palatable.
4. Add about 3/4 cup of hot water and stir.
Of course, perfection would be real grits and real bacon with home-grown tomatoes, but this works in a pinch. It’s a great recipe for camping, especially if you substitute sun-dried tomatoes.
