Martha Stewart takes the classic combination of grits, tomato, and cheese to a new level by topping it with broiled tomato slices. She uses cheddar and butter to create a creamy texture for the grits. Thick slices of diced bacon are fried and added to individual portions of cheesy grits, along with a broiled tomato. Stewart emphasizes the importance of not using pre-cooked bacon bits and instead frying your own for better flavor. The broiled tomatoes bring out their sweetness, complementing the cheesy grits and salty bacon. Different cheeses like parmesan or gouda can be used instead of cheddar for a unique twist. The grits absorb all the flavors for a delicious bite.
