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!

When it says 1 c of grits, is this referring to cooked grits or uncooked? 1c of uncooked grits yeilds 6 servings or cooked grits, but the recipe doesn't serve but 2-3?

When we go out to eat my husband always orders shrimp and grits if it is on the menu. When I saw your recipe I saved it because I wanted to try it. I made it yesterday and he LOVED IT!!!! He said it is the better than any he's had before. Thank your for sharing! 5 star rating from me. :)

Grits and Polenta are not the same thing. They are made of ground corn but they are processed differently. This url tells you the difference.

Sorry people we just don't have anything like Grits or Polenta where I live. We have oatmeal and couscous. If I ever get state side I'll look for some and bring it home to try.
Thanks for your help.
