Grits Recipe - A Southern staple breakfast or side dish that is creamy, cheesy and so versatile. Best served with eggs, sausages for breakfast and with other meaty proteins!
Start by adding water, milk, bay leaf and salt to a heavy sauce- pan. Bring to a boil.
Gradually whisk in the grits, until you have added the whole thing in the pot, a little at a time. Keep stirring with a whisk to prevent any lumps.
You may have to remove sauce- pan from heat while trying to get rid of lumps – if needed.
Reduce heat and cook grits at a bare simmer, covered, stirring frequently, until water is fully absorbed and grits thickened. This will take you about 15 minutes.
Remove grits from heat; add butter and cheese, stirring with a whisk until cheese melts.
Assemble the dish by placing the grits at the bottom of a shallow bowl, Cajun shrimp and it’s sauce. Enjoy piping hot!
