Shrimp and grits — a Southern favorite — relies on two key components: fabulous cheese grits and buttery sauteed shrimp. The rest is in the details. Of course, that lagniappe, or "little something extra," infuses character and flavor to the dish and tells your guests they're worth the added effort. Welcome to our Thanksgiving breakfast at Estlle's....the southern creole way!
Place water, salt and pepper in a saucepan and bring to boil. Add grits, milk and butter. Stir and cover. Cook for at least one hour over low heat. Stir frequently. About 5 minutes before serving, add cheese, and continue to stir. Add more butter or milk if grits need to be thinned.
