Count on tangy, golden Henning's sharp cheddar to elevate shrimp and grits in this southern-style grilled cheese. Cheesy cheddar grits are layered on toasty bread with shrimp, sharp cheddar and crispy bacon that’s drizzled with chili infused honey. This grilled cheese oozes cheddar flavor with a little sweet south heat.

Cooking Instructions

1

Heat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil.


2

In medium bowl, add shrimp, 1 tablespoon of melted butter, lemon juice, scallions and parsley. Toss and set aside.


3

In microwave-safe bowl, combine water, 2 teaspoons of the remaining butter, grits, salt and pepper. Cook at 50 percent power until thickened, about 7-8 minutes. Add 1/3 cup grated sharp cheddar, stir until melted.

Spread the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter onto both sides of each bread slice. Heat large skillet over medium heat. Lightly toast bread on both sides. Transfer to foil-lined pan.

Spread grits over each slice of bread; divide evenly. On two slices, layer shrimp over grits. On the other two slices, arrange 2 slices of bacon on each piece. Drizzle chili-infused honey over bacon.


6

Place sharp cheddar slices over all 4 slices of bread and bake in oven for 4-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and sandwich together the shrimp side and the bacon side. Cut in half and serve immediately.
