|A little grits with your cheese?|
This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Baked Cheese Grits. This may be the first chance my fellow Baked friends have to see that my blog is about meals, not just sweets! These cheese-infused grits are simple comfort food elevated to an American classic.
My husband, John grew up in New Orleans, so when I told him that I was making grits (no, he didn’t laugh at his California girl), he suggested we make them with shrimp. I love shrimp but have to admit that I can’t handle really spicy foods so John lightened up the seasoning for me. We ended up with a wonderfully flavored sauce full of shrimp, Andouille sausage, and ham. This recipe is adapted from The Charleston Chef’s Table, a wonderful cookbook I bought on our trip to Charleston last year.
