"Delightful addition to a beautiful brunch or perhaps a light supper with a salad. From Southern Living"
Serving Size: 1 (195 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 10
"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."
"De-lish.Perfect brunch for Father's Day after church. I got rave reviews from a not so easy crowd to please, and they even wanted the recipe. In my opinion its a pretty forgiving recipe as well. I used veg stock since that is what I had, and I used both green onions and a couple of shallots but no green pepper. I also used the original Rotel and was told that it could've been spicier so next time I will also add japs. This is a keeper for sure! Thank you Bev~ Oh, and I agree with the servings... this was served to 4 people who are in their 60's and 70's and my husband who is in his 40's and it only served the 5!! (I was sick that day, but they saved me a smidgen)"
"Very easy and very good. I added fresh diced tomatoes and a small hand full of diced jalapenos. Excellent comments."
"delicious. I added bacon, some Tabasco and paprika also."
"Bev, this is by far one of the best meals I have ever had the pleasure of making. Very impressive. This one is defiantly going to be on the menu more often."
"This is my new favorite recipe. I could eat it morning and night. It is sooo yummy. I use instant grits and it comes out perfect!"
"I tried this recipe this past weekend and all I can say is Oh My Gosh, what a great casserole. By the time my kids stopped by there was nothing left. Will definitely be making this again but will add a little more shrimp next time. Thanks for a great recipe."
"Wonderful, served with ham at Christmas. I will make again."
"In past years, I have served traditional shrimp and grits for Christmas Brunch. However, over the years, our group has grown to over 25 people. I served this casserole this year and was so pleased with the many favorable comments I received. I had many folks asking for the recipe, including a professional chef! The only thing I did different was to double the amount of shrimp called for. I used large shrimp and cut them in half."
"I made this for the first time ever for my boyfriend and I and it was amazing! I did not add the can tomatoes due to him not being a fan of them. I added sausage to the recipe and it was very good. We ate on the leftovers for 2 mornings after and it was even better. Highly recommend this dish!"
"LOVED IT! It was a hit with my guests and myself. The only change I made was I left out the green peppers. I don't like cooked green pepers. And for next time (yes there will a next time) I will use low sodium chicken broth, and I will probably not use the monterey jack pepper cheese or maybe not a full cup. It was a little spicer than what I like. Again, it was success and I will make it again! Thanks for sharing!"
"This was delicious. The Rotel made it a little spicy for our youngest, but everybody else devoured it!"
"I just made this for my family. They are still raving about it, and they practically inhaled it. This is great!"
"My husband and I loved this! He went on and on about it. I just looked up and saw that it said that it served 10-12. Uh oh! I guess that might work if if was served as a side, but we ate it as the main entree. Thanks for a recipe that we will have again and again."
"This is a wonderful, filling meal that feels really good sliding down your throat when warm! My husband and I thought that the chicken broth, milder Rotel and garlic were nice additions to the flavor of the dish. I did not add any green pepper because we don't really care for cooked green pepper. This is now one of my favorite recipes for sure! Simply wonderful! Easy to make."
"I made this for Christmas brunch and it was a HUGE hit with everyone in the family (even those who don't normally like grits)."
"What a delicious recipe! My husband and children really enjoyed this. I was even eating it before I added everything and it was just cheesy grits! I had been looking for a shrimp & grits recipe after having it this past summer at several upscale functions. It was pretty served in martini glasses and can definately be dressed up or down. Thanks!"
"Ohhhhhhhhhhh my goodness...talk about amazing! DH and I thoroughly enjoyed this dish. This is a definite make again recipe. "
