Spicy Shrimp & Grits

This is a traditional southern type of dish. Some people love it, some people have never heard of it, or don't care for it. I love the grits part...but pass on the shrimp.

My husband loves Shrimp & Grits! Today is Father's Day so I wanted to make him breakfast and what better then his favorite Shrimp & Grits.

My recipe is a simple version. If you are making this dish for a dinner party you might want to do a more extensive version which includes onion, chicken broth, bacon, and green pepper. Honestly it tastes just about the same. Would love to hear any comments. Enjoy!
