Shrimp~n~Cheesy Grits... Griddle Style :)





I love shrimp and grits in the house and over the campfire, I decided to see if I could come up with a way to cook this on the Blackstone.

I made my cheesy grits first, then cooled them, cut em with my biscuit cutter and rolled them in panko...





I had regular ole panko and some whole wheat that I wanted to try...




I made a sauce using butter, liquid crab boil, dijon mustard, garlic, oregano, basil, thyme, Salt and pepper... I think that was all.



Started frying the bacon...



caught some of the bacon drippings for the sauce and let it simmer on the back of the griddle...





added some spicy Conecuh sausage to the griddle...




I love Conecuh sausage. It's not available in my area but I can get it on trips south. The spicy kind is my favorite.

Started some scallions and garlic in the sausage and bacon drippings...






then fried the cheesy grit cakes in the bacon drippings...



added some really nice shrimp I brought home from a trip to Galveston...







I let the grit cakes get crisp on the outside....



Pretty much ready to eat!





Griddle style shrimp n cheesy grits..







I filled my bowl with shrimp and sausage, then drizzled with the sauce, topped with a cheesy grit cake and called er good.






It's more of a finger food style shrimp n grits, messy but tasty. I really enjoyed it! The grit cakes were crisp on the outside and creamy/cheesy in the center. The Conecuh sausage added a nice bit of spice and the fresh gulf shrimp were nice. I love shrimp...no matter how it's fixed but this was one of my favorite shrimp cooks.
I'm having fun with this griddle. Didn't know it would come in so handy.

The weekend blizzard didn't turn out as bad as expected. I guess it was best to be ready for the worse and not need the extra precautions.
Hope everyone stayed safe and had a great weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!

Forgot to mention. I liked the regular ole panko breadcrumbs better than the whole wheat. :)

That looked good! Either those shrimp were huge or those sausages were little.
Makes my mouth water 2000 miles away...

Thanks Rob! It was a little of both. The shrimp were good sized and the sausage was small...about hot dog diameter size. :)
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great New Year! :)
