Ingredients


    2 cups skim milk
    3/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
    1 cup uncooked quick-cooking grits
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Parmesan cheese
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 (3-ounce) package 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
    3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    2 large egg whites
    1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp, coarsely chopped
    Cooking spray
    Hot pepper sauce (optional)

Tips

Haven't tried yet, just put here for safe keeping. Could probably substitute butter to lower calories more. I would probably use whole eggs instead of just whites.


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375°.
2. Combine milk and broth in a medium heavy saucepan; bring to a boil. Gradually add grits and salt to pan, stirring constantly with a whisk. Cook 5 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in Parmesan, butter, and cream cheese. Stir in parsley and next 4 ingredients (through shrimp). Spoon mixture into an 11 x 7–inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes or until set. Serve with hot pepper sauce, if desired.


Serving Size: 6 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)
