Recipe #57 - Colton’s Cheesy Shrimp Grits
Wow…never thought I’d be doing grits twice on my blog. Yet here I am.
Actually it was really nice to try grits again. I had a lot left over from my last recipe (they never go bad) and, if I remember correctly, that one was pretty boring and I was in need of a do-over. With more ingredients than just grits, cheese, and butter it was great to try a grits recipe with more oomph to it.
And oomph it had, this stuff was filling and full of flavor! Strangely, it was the bacon that stood out the most, nearly overpowering any shrimp flavor. As much as I love bacon, I think this would have worked fine without it if you’d like to save some time and dishes.
The recipe for this says it serves four but in reality it’s more like 4-6. You’ll most likely have leftovers if you make it for a small group.
