Garlic Cheese Grits

by Dinner Hero on January 28, 2013

I’ve been making these grits for a long time.  The original recipe said to bake the grits after everything was mixed together.  I often wondered why I needed to bake already cooked food.  So, one time (when I was short on time) I decided to skip the “bake it in the oven for 30 minutes step” and just eat it right after it was mixed.  And you know what?  I actually liked this quick-cooking method better!

I love it when I can save time.

Grits make a great side dish.  However, my favorite way to eat them is with shrimp on top!

Here they are, making a perfect bed for these shrimp to lay on.
