Shrimp and Grits

Yummy Shrimp and Grits Recipe!

As a southerner, I grew up eating grits. In fact, my dear grandmother had choice words for a local restaurant that served grits not up to her south Georgia standards. My eldest daughter was just a couple of days old, and with family in to visit, my husband watched the baby so my dad and grandmother could take me out to breakfast. After tasting the grits at the locally-owned and operated restaurant in my Virginia hometown, my grandmother could barely wait for the server to ask about the meal so that she could tell them that those were the worst grits she had ever tasted in all of her 73 years, and she had lived all over the country. We still laugh about it 20 years later!

Grits with shrimp sounded like some northern twist on a sacred southern staple when I first heard about it, but I can honestly say that this is one of my all time favorite dishes. I have to admit that I am guilty of throwing in more than the 2 ounces of cheddar that the recipe calls for, but where cheese is concerned more is almost always better. Enjoy!
