Truffled mushroom grits
This dish tastes like a million bucks and costs next to nothing. And it takes only about 10 minutes to prepare, from start to finish. Essentially it's cheese grits, with mushrooms sauteed in truffle oil, all mixed together. I even added some bacon-bourbon jam to it, though of course that's optional. (Really damn tasty, though.)
Make a batch of grits. (Quick grits: 3 cups water to 1 cup grits.) When done, stir in two handfuls of shredded cheese. I used a combination of smoked gouda and comte. Meanwhile, slice a package of white button mushrooms, and saute them gently in a mixture of truffle oil and a little button, until they're dark and soft. Stir into the grits, and serve.
