Preparation <p>For the grits:</p>
<p>Bring 2 cups of salted water to a boil. Slowly stir in 1/2 cup quick grits, stir immediately and reduce the heat, then bring back to boil. Add butter and stir. Reduce the heat and simmer. Let cook approximately 4 minutes, then stir in half and half to desired creaminess. Cook grits to taste, up to 30 minutes. </p>

<p>For the scrambled eggs:</p>
<p>Have pan heating on stovetop over medium-high heat. Crack 2 eggs into a bowl. Add salt and pepper, 2 tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon sour cream. Whisk together. Add butter to pan. Pour in egg mixture and use spoon to scramble. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>For the poached eggs:</p>

<p> </p>
