Sweet-sounding restaurant Ted & Honey on Clinton Street serves up one of the best savory breakfasts in Brooklyn.

Creamy southern grits with cheddar, country ham, and farm fresh egg are the main ingredients of Ted & Honey’s standout dish, the Red Neck Wrap ($8). The dish was created by Chef Chris “Ted” Jackson who served it as part of the family meal at his old restaurant. When Ted & Honey was born, Chef Ted decided to make the wrap part of the main menu, and the Red Neck Wrap has remained on the menu since day one.

The grits, thick, creamy, and enriched with good, sharp cheddar, provide a creamy backbone for a slice of ham from Dines Farm in the Catskills and a fried egg. The whole thing is grilled and comes out of the kitchen as a thin, piping-hot package. Though compact, this wrap makes for a filling breakfast. It’s best enjoyed alternately dipping it in the house-made apricot hot sauce and mango ketchup, which add a robust, fruity kick of flavor.

The restaurant tells us the name can cause the occasional controversy, but patrons agree that this wrap is one of the best breakfast sandwiches around.

Ted & Honey [264 Clinton St. at Verandah Place, (718) 852–2212,].
