Originally a Dana Carpenter recipe modified a bit with less cream cheese, cheese and butter. Absolutely delicious and pretty easy to throw together! My Dad was not one bit fooled by the "Grits" and since he doesn't like veggies he didn't eat that part. He loved the shrimp but DH and I loved the entire dish!
