Shrimp and Grits with BLT Relish

Directions

  1. Line a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker with disposable liner. Cut corn from cobs. In prepared cooker stir together corn kernels and the next six ingredients (through black pepper). Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours or until grits are tender and mixture is starting to thicken.
  2. For relish, in a large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Drain bacon to a paper towel; reserve drippings in skillet. Crumble cooled bacon. In a bowl combine bacon, tomatoes, basil, and green onions. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  3. Just before serving, in a large skillet cook shrimp in reserved bacon drippings over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp are opaque. Stir shrimp and cheese into grits until cheese is melted. If mixture is too thick, thin mixture with milk to desired consistency. Top servings with relish. If desired, season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
