butter and cheese according to cheesy recipe on grits package


1Sauté onion in clarified butter until softened. Add flour and whisk thoroughly until it comes together to form a thick roux.

2Add cayenne and herbs, tomatoes and mushrooms if using. Add broth, Worcestershire, tabasco, and salt and pepper. Simmer on medium for 15 minutes.

Additional Notes

BullyGoth Farm makes an herb and mushroom blend which you can purchase at the Yarmouth Farmers Market in NS. This can be omitted if necessary, but it's pretty great. There are many possible variations to this recipe, which Jimmy explains in the podcast episode. It can be served with rice if grits aren't available. Enjoy!
