Amazing!!!! This was one of the best things I have ever eaten. My husband is from the South and asked for shrimp and grits tonight. I had never made it, and found this recipe. So glad that I did. I halved the recipe and added 1/2 & 1/2 in lieu of heavy cream. I also added less butter all around. Would definitely try andouille next time. This would be wonderful for a dinner party!
