¼ tsp. baking soda
¼ c. chopped cooked bacon

Put the cream, water, and grits in a pot and cook for about 10 minutes (or as directed on package). Remove from heat and cool.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and a dash of salt. Mix in the remaining ingredients, and blend with grits to form a batter.
