Shrimp n' Grits Recipe
|Chopped Bell Pepper|
First, I added 1/2 cup of diced bell pepper because I saw this in
other recipes & I like the texture and taste.
Oh & some people call what I call green onions, "scallions". FYI

|Fried Bacon !|
I rarely eat regular bacon these days, but I wanted to stick to the recipe.
I love my turkey bacon but I must say this pork was good ! LOL
A second change I made was......
Instead of 4 cups of water I cooked the grits with 1 cup of milk & 3 cups of water to make them just a little bit creamier.
|Sauteed Shrimp & bell pepper|
Now on to the shrimp .......
First I sauteed the bell pepper in the pan I cooked the bacon in. I poured out almost all of the bacon fat & just left a light film in the pan, then cooked the shrimp.

|Cheesy Grits !|
Excuse the presentation but I was hungry & an anxious to try it. LOL
|The finished product|
The one thing I would do differently next time is to make a bit of gravy for the shrimp mixture. Mr. Mixologist knows how to make gravy, but I really don't. Mine always comes out tasting pasty. There are several recipes that add cream or milk to the shrimp mixture & next time, I may try one of those, but overall this was a good recipe and tasted pretty darn good.
Have you ever had Shrimp n' Grits ?
