From Real Simple's featured 20-minute meals, on facebook! NOTE: I've allowed a few more minutes to prep the shrimp, and grate the cheese!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the grits according to the package directions. Stir in the Cheddar.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel–­lined plate.
  3. Add the minced garlic and saute for about 45 seconds; add white wine, shrimp, and tomatoes to the skillet and cook in the bacon fat, tossing occasionally, until the shrimp is opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add a generous grind of black pepper; stir in the scallions and the bacon, and immediately serve over the grits.
