This cheesy shrimp and grits recipe is an easy low-country classic. We’re talking shrimp and bacon smothering a puddle of Cheddar grits. Need we say more?
This southern shrimp and grits recipe is a classic low-country dish adored by just about everyone on the planet–and if someone say they don’t love it, they’re lying. You can certainly count The One and me among its fans. We first had a plateful of this divineness at a lovely little restaurant in Charleston. Originally published May 8, 2010.–David Leite

My first experience eating grits was not the best. Then I tried some at a small restaurant in North Carolina and realized that if the grits are properly cooked, they really could be amazing. When I finally decided to make grits at home, this shrimp and grits recipe was my first try, and it couldn't be any easier to make. The grits came out wonderful—filled with strong cheese flavor yet not so overwhelming that I couldn't enjoy the shrimp and bacon. This is extremely filling and better suited to lunch so you can enjoy a little nap afterwards.
