So very sorry about this thread only having a one picture, but I was more concerned with making this dish then doing a tutorial. After a fantastic afternoon watching my grandson. My wife and I came home and decided to go for it. Well HOT DAMN
i'm glad we did.
32oz of Chicken Broth
2 chicken Bouillon cubes
1lb. uncooked shrimp
1/2lb dry scallops
1/2 pint of half-n-half
1 level cup of Quaker Oats 5 min. grits
16oz Freshly shredded cheddar cheese.
A few cuts of green onions for appearance
Unknown quantity of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
In a nutshell. I basically cooked the bacon. Then w/o draining the grease I cooked the shrimp and scallops in the grease. Next I brought the chicken broth with the bouillon cubes to a boil. Added grits and turned the heat to low. Stirring every 2 minutes. Once I had the consistency I was looking for I added the cheese. Half-n-Half was then added to maintain desired thickness. At this point I added salt and pepper to taste. When I was at my happy place with the grits I folded in bacon crumbles, a couple of tablespoons of bacon grease, all but 8 of the shrimp and 6 of the scallops. Spoon it into a bowl and topped each bowl with 3 scallops and 4 shrimp. Sliced up some green onion for presentation and veggie. This was a total hit with the wife and I. Most definitely doing this again. Except next time I'll probably add some lobster to the mix.

Thanks for taking a look, and thanks to all of the SMF family who provided me with their guidance and expertise in the fine art of making Grits.
