      Very easy recipe. So glad to have found it!!
      I didn't have green onions so I diced 1/2 a yellow onion and I added fat-free half-and-half and paprika on top in addition to the cheese because, here, in S.C. there's always a cream sauce/ gravy that tops shrimp and grits.

      A real winner from Southern Living magazine. I have made this recipe on many occasions with rave reviews from my guests every time. I even have some friends who regularly hint that it's time for me to make this casserole again. I prep the recipe a day in advance, assemble and bake on the evening of my dinner parties. Only changes are that I use 2 garlic cloves and 1.5 lb. shrimp.

      I have made this casserole many times and it is great. I have made it with changes and as is. The one change I made and have kept is using Pepper Jack cheese. Oh, yum. It has a kick but is not too spicy. Also, I ALWAYS use instant grits. A sin here in Alabama, but not one person has noticed or complained. ;) I once found blue grits at a farmers market and it tasted the same, but it was colorful and pretty. I am making for a side dish at Thanksgiving this year.
