    Crispy Rice with Ham and Bean Sprouts | Toasting half the rice in this recipe yields warmth and crunch that takes this ultra-comforting 5-ingredient entrée from ordinary to exceptional. For an added kick, serve with a drizzle of Sriracha.

    Shrimp 'n' Grits Skewers | Try shrimp and grits in skewer form. These skewers feature polenta cubes, shrimp, and grape tomatoes.
