Linda's Story

SO, being from NY, I could not imagine this combo. After one taste out to eat one night, I was sold; may not be southern but my family loves my northern version!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Super smooth and satisfying, this recipe could easily be doubled for a potluck or party. Next time I may add butter to the grits for an even creamier consistency. Yum!

    I will have to look for the recipe.. i will post it when i find it. It is very similiar. No shrimp but it starts out frying down bacon and onions.Mixing the grits with water and cream plus adding cheese and greens, can be canned greens but my mom used to make it with fresh when i was gowning up. As soon as i find it i will post it.
