Instructions
  1. Bring broth to a boil over medium-high heat then stir in grits. Return to boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer. Stirring occasionally, cook until it's reached your ideal thickness, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Stir in butter, cheese, and seasonings. Cover and set aside.
  3. Cook bacon until crisp, remove from pan.
  4. Cook shrimp in the same pan the bacon was in over medium-high heat until the shrimp is almost pink, about 3 minutes.
  5. Stir in garlic, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce and cook until shrimp is pink, another minute or two.
  6. Stir in bacon until evenly mixed.
  7. Divide grits into 4 shallow bowls and serve with shrimp mix on top, sprinkled with green onions.
Recipe Notes

For an extra Cajun twist, try swapping the bacon out for tasso or andouille.
