DIRECTIONS

  • Cook bacon till crisp: drain and chop coarsely. (We used the already cooked real bacon bits).
  • Squeeze extra juice from tomatoes. Dice and toss with julienned sundried tomatoes; set aside.
  • In large skillet, melt ½ stick butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms and brown slightly. Remove from pan, drain and cool.
  • In 3 quart saucepan, bring water, cream, salt, cayenne and 1 ½ sticks butter to boil. Slowly stir in grits. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand 10 minutes. (1 stick of butter is plenty for the grits).
  • Spread grits on bottom of 9x13 greased glass dish. Layer shrimp on, pressing into the grits. Next layer mushrooms, bacon and tomatoes in that order. Casserole may be refrigerated at this point and may be made up to 2 days ahead. Bake 30-40 minutes in a 325 degree oven. Garnish with green onions. Easily serves 12-14.
