Easy Cheesy Shrimp & Grits

I married a low-country man and he introduced me to Shrimp & Grits. I enjoy many varioations but my sons both like this simpel version and it's easy to whip up for dinner! I serve this with a salad.

ingredients

directions

  • Boil shrimp. Use Old Bay seasoning in water to add additional flavor. 3-5 minutes in boiling water is usually plenty of time. Overcooking makes them tough. Set shrimp aside.
  • Boil 3 cups water. Add grits, reduce heat to medium=low and cover. Cook 5-7 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  • Add remaining ingredients to grits and stir to melt cheese.
  • Dish grits into individual bowls and top with shrimp.

    I definitely enjoyed this recipe...I just gave it a 4 before of the way that I made it, but next time it will definitely be a 5 ! I'm going to use larger shrimp, and I'm going to make sure the tails are off or, after I boil them, de-tail them myself. And, with a pitcher of sweet tea to go with it, this recipe is going to be awesome, and it's sooo quick. I really loved that part because, with a 4-year old, I don't have a lot of time...
