  4. Add the chicken stock and let this boil down for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, stir the cheddar cheese, butter and pepper into the grits. The dish might not need any more salt, but add some if you'd like.
  5. To serve, spoon out some grits in individual bowls. Add the shrimp, Bacon, green onions, parsley and lemon juice to taste. Serve at once.
