  • Bring water and salt to a boil in a saucepan; add grits. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and let simmer until thickened, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Stir Gouda cheese and butter into cooked grits until well mixed and cheese is melted. Add bacon and shrimp. Garnish with green onion and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

Cook's Note:

You can use any kind of cheese that melts nicely.
