Take a break from your boring workaday life and pretend that you are down in the Big Easy. You're feeling the heat, the humidity, and you know that the spice in this dish can only cool you down from the inside out. 

Grits, cheese, shrimp, bacon and spices? This is going to be all right.

Product Description


3 cups water
3 cups milk
1 ½ cups stone-ground grits
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
4 tbsp butter
½ lb bacon, chopped
3 lbs shrimp, peeled and deveined
Juice of 1 lemon
1 bunch scallions, minced

1. In a medium saucepan, bring the water and milk to a boil. While whisking, add the grits in a steady stream. Bring the heat down to low and continue to whisk periodically (careful, as the grits tend to splatter). Check for doneness around 20 minutes; the grits should be smooth and not gritty.

2. Meanwhile, add the bacon to large skillet and then place over medium heat. Cook, while stirring occasionally, until bacon is crispy; then use a slotted spoon to transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Drain off all but 2 tbsp of bacon grease.

3. Add the shrimp to the bacon grease and cook until pink all the way through, about 2-3 minutes. Add the lemon juice.

4. Once the grits are fully cooked, stir in the salt, pepper, cheddar cheese, and butter and whisk vigorously to combine. Taste and adjusting seasoning as necessary.

5. Place the grits in a serving dish and top with sauteed shrimp; garnish with bacon and scallion.
