Directions

  1. Place the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside, leaving the grease in the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium and add the onions to the pan. Cook and stir until transparent.
  2. In a small bowl or cup, stir together the flour and water. Mix in the evaporated milk. Pour into the pan with the onions; cook, stirring constantly, until gravy has thickened. Stir in the bouillon cube, garlic salt, chives, salt and pepper. Return the bacon to the skillet, and add the shrimp. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until shrimp are pink and opaque. Serve over grits, biscuits or rice.

This was a very easy recipe with nice flavor. Living in Savannah, shrimp and grits is a staple, but even though my husband is a native and I've been here 5 years I had yet to find a recipe I wanted to try. This was it! My husband loved it and I would not hesitate serving to guests. Definitely better served over grits than rice. I used fresh garlic and half and half as that was what was on hand. Turned out great. Thanks for sharing.

My Husband flipped over this recipe. I did use the entire can of evaporated milk, subbed granulated garlic for the garlic salt, used Better than Boullion instead of the cube, added cayenne pepper, left out the extra salt and served over rice. He ate it all... I had ice cream for dinner. Thanks, HardCore-Mama... hubby was in hog heaven!

this was an easy recipe to make. for those who want a short-cut, replace the 'flour+water+milk' and beef bouillon cube with 1 can of cream of chicken/mushroom soup + 1 can water. works out the same.
