Did I mention I'm a GRITS gal?

Although I grew up only 40 minutes from "the ville" I'm just now discovering some of the dinning gems in Gator City. One of my new favorite finds in The Flying Biscuit, over in the Millhopper area. [Total side tangent- as I was just looking up the website for the hyperlink I just realized this is a franchise that I had on my Atlanta List back in 2007 and never went! The original location is in ATL Crazy.]

Cute table settings! 

Christine and I joined the masses for Sunday Breakfast a few weeks ago, and let me say it was totally worth the wait and the slightly steamy table on the sidewalk.

I started with a vanilla iced latte to help alleviate the Florida humidity.  I don't order coffee drinks that often, so this was a nice treat to start off the meal.

The Flying Biscuit has a great menu, including some really healthy and tasting sounding items....but my heard was already set on grits, biscuits and possibly gravy.....then I spotted the Southern Benedict on the specials insert.

Come to Momma!

Now, I know that this doesn't look, yellow much? BUT it was freaking heaven on a plate. That crazy mess you see above is a split biscuit topped with apple sausage patties, 2 over easy eggs, sausage gravy with a side of "creamy, dreamy grits."  I devoured this, after peeling the extra sausage patties I LOVE sausage (it's probably the one things that keeps me from committing to being a veg-head) but it was a little too close to a meat fest, if you know what I mean. Oh, and Flying Biscuit, you DO have every right to call those grits both creamy and dreamy. Heavenly, really. I would eat a bowl of grits like that for every meal and die a happy woman! Sigh.

A cross the table from me, Christine was being all healthy and shizz (kidding love!)....check out her oatmeal pancakes.

I snitched a dense, lovely bite. Wow!
So, the moral of this story is, check the website and see if a Flying Buiscuit is near you, because you have to try the grits! 

Love to all,
~the "fly me to the moon with grits" girl, Jess

Oh, wow. I love The Flying Biscuit. I've only been once, but while there I had a giant omelette with goat cheese, mushrooms, spinach, and some tomato saucy thing. I also had a biscuit (duh) and dreamy, creamy grits (love). Annnd then because we just had to try it, one of those cinnamon roll pancakes.

This has become a must-visit during my trips home! I had some sort of black bean cake with salsa and sour cream on top- was fantastic. xo
