Creamy Shrimp and Grits with Green Chiles and Gruyere

Shrimp and grits comes in many flavors. This version has a rich, creamy Gruyere grits base, topped with shrimp in a flavor packed sauce of green chiles, prosciutto and white wine.

Shrimp and grits is a traditional southern breakfast dish from the lowcountry of Georgia and South Carolina.  Recently, it has made a gradual spread throughout the country and now often appears on the menus of upscale restaurants in much the same way that lobster macaroni and cheese has.

This happens to be one of my husband’s favorites, and was also a favorite of my late father-in-law.  In honor of their New Mexico (as well as Georgia) roots, my version is infused with hatch green chiles.
