      Out of respect for your submission made this recipe as stated. This was the 2nd best grits recipe I have experienced! If you ever obtain Hyman's Grit Cake with garlic alfredo sure to post (Charleston SC). This was a treat! Used quick grits and they turned out just right. Thanks for posting....come on folks just try the recipe as it is won't be sorry.

      I made this for our dinner last night & we loved it. My alterations/suggestions: (1) Used 2% milk since that was what I had on hand, (2) Reduced the amount of extra water added to the grits in step 11 to 3/4 cups. You can always add more water--you can't take it back out :-), (3) I realized while cooking that by the time the ingredients you add in step 8 thicken...the shrimp were going to be horribly overcooked (hello rubber bouncing balls). I pulled the shrimp out when they were just to the slightly-underdone point, turned the heat up on the burner & reduced the sauce to a thicker consistency for a couple of minutes. Then poured it over the shrimp in the bowl (hot sauce = keeps cooking delicate seafood). (4) Another Suggestion-- cut the amount of ingredients for the cheesegrits in half if you are just cooking for a couple of people. The cheese-grit flavor is great, but it makes a TON. I will be getting creative with leftover cheesegrits tonight for dinner :-P...

      In a few words, we LOVED this southern favorite! I used large shrimp and they were tender and delicious. The grits were excellent and I had no problem with them. I felt they were the right consistency for the dish. Grits aren't supposed to be super thick anyway. This will be repeated when company is joining us, so I can impress them with my cooking talents :) Loved this one!
