    This right here is a winner! I just finished making this meal and had to immediately jump on here to leave a review. When I tell you I kept ‘taste testing’ the entire time it’s the truth! Good ol’ southern spice and everything nice. The cheesy cauliflower rice instead of grits is perfection. This is definitely one of my FFF recipe favorites! Thank you!
