    DG Test Kitchen Tip: Take your taste buds on a tasty trip to the South with this sinfully delicious classic. And rather than smothering these with mounds of cheese, like a traditional recipe would, we chose to add the flavor by adding garlic, lemon juice, a splash of hot sauce, and just a bit of cheddar. Since shrimp are a lean protein and always a favorite, we suggest you stock up on them as a good go-to when you need a super-fast dinner.
