3 cups 1% low-fat milk
1 cup water
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1 cup uncooked quick-cooking grits
1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
4 slices applewood-smoked bacon
1 pound peeled, deveined large shrimp
1 cup thinly vertically sliced white onion
2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce or chopped chipotle chile, canned in adobo sauce
1/8 teaspoon ground or crushed red pepper
1/4 cup green onion strips
1. Combine milk, water, butter, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer; gradually add grits, stirring constantly with a whisk. Reduce heat to medium; cook 4 minutes or until thick, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in cheese.
2. While grits cook, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 2 teaspoons drippings; crumble bacon. Add shrimp to drippings in pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until done. Remove shrimp from pan. Add white onion to pan; sauté 1 minute.
