Scallops and Cheese Grits with Ted Allen
Ted Allen, star chef and host of Food Network's "Chopped," went on CBS' "This Morning," to demonstrate his delicious recipe for Scallops and cheddar cheese grits with chorizo. If you're looking for a hearty breakfast, Allen's your man.
The first time I had the Southern classic, shrimp and grits, was on-set during the filming of "Top Chef" in Miami, brilliantly prepared by Dallas-based chef Tre Wilcox in a taco truck. I've been hooked ever since. Here, the same idea, but with sea scallops -- also a sweet shellfish, and one that needs no peeling or deveining. Scallops are particularly friendly with salty, spicy pork, whether it's fancy Italian ham, good old bacon or, in this case, the spicy Spanish sausage that rounds out this dish.
