My family's favorite with seafood, especially with shrimp or crabcakes. It's great for brunch or a casual dinner party! Growing up, I never had grits, but I've grown to love them. :) Prep time does not include the 20 minutes needed to cook the grits.

Yummy and super easy. I used real bacon on top. My West coast friends who had never had grits loved it!

Very tasty. I cooked exactly as directions stated and it was enjoyed by all. Next time (and there will be a next time) I think I will try mixing the cheese in with the grits. Just a personal preference, but we really enjoyed the cheese being on top also. Thanks for the recipe.
