Shrimp and Grits is a southern comfort food originating from the low country coast of Georgia, but with regional twists from the Carolinas and Gulf Coast states.
This southern specialty is sometimes called “breakfast shrimp” but many consider it more of a lunch or dinner type dish. The traditional versions are made with slow cooked creamy, buttery, and often cheesy grits ground from hominy corn, and studded with bacon sauce and lots of succulent garlicky shrimp. Unfortunately, corn grits are loaded with carbs which are a no can do on the keto diet, so we’ve come up with this homey bowl of keto awesomeness that is sure to please even the most traditional southern palate.
