this was great !!! my 'go to' shrimp and grits. would be perfect for company. used ham, but not sure if any pork products needed. might try hormel bacon bits.....grits were extra special with the milk and broth !! (i love grits!!) have passed this recipe on to quite a few friends. leftovers were great too. couldn't wait to eat them!!!!
Delicious and easy. I forgot to buy Canadian bacon and used 2 slices regular bacon instead. I used a 15-ounce can diced tomatoes and chiles (instead of 10-ounce), so it was extra spicy; I also used less shrimp than specified because that was what I had on hand. I used a mixture of yellow, red, and green pepper strips.
Fantastic recipe--easy and delicious. I used precooked shrimp, so I just added them at the end and turned the stove off so they'd heat but not cook. My only change was to add some garlic and red pepper flakes to the pepper mixture. This dish makes a beautiful presentation as well. I served with cornbread and a green salad with apples and pomegranate seeds in a raspberry viniagrette. Serving size is fine, though big eaters might want two servings.
I added garlic/salt/crushed red pepper to the grits prior to adding the cheese, but other than that no substitutions. Halved the servings as a side dish to a cajun seasoned NY Strip Steak for a cajun themed surf and turf dinner. Fantastic (gourmet!) dinner; one of the best I have ever made. I can't wait to make this one again.
