Chipotle Cheddar Shrimp & Grits Recipe

YIELD: Serves 4

PREP TIME: 20 minutes

COOK TIME: 20 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 40 minutes


1 large egg, beaten
3/4 pound uncooked medium or large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 pkg. (6 oz.) FRESH TAKE Spicy Chipotle Cheddar Recipe Cheese Breadcrumb Mix (reserve 1 teaspoon breadcrumbs & 3 Tablespoons cheddar cheese)

1 cup uncooked grits
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
fresh Italian parsley, chopped


Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.

Place beaten egg in a shallow dish. Reserve the above breadcrumbs and cheddar cheese and mix together the remaining breadcrumbs & cheese in another shallow dish. Dip shrimp in egg and then FRESH TAKE mixture. Throw away any unused cheese mixture. Bake for 15 minutes or until shrimp is cooked -- tender and golden brown.

Bring 1 3/4 cups of water and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Add grits to the pot along with the reserved breadcrumbs and cheese. Stir constantly, for five minutes. Halfway through, add milk and keep stirring. Add butter, remove from heat and cover for two to three minutes. Stir a few times before serving. (Add more water for even creamier grits.)

Serve grits in bowls topped with shrimp and garnished with parsley. Optional: top with more cheese!

Notes: Make it a well-rounded meal by serving it with a salad for dinner.
