Stir constantly until cheese is fully melted.
Spray a large rectangular baking pan with non-stick spray.
Pour grits into pan and spread evenly.

Cut into squares and deep fry each square until golden brown.

In a saute pan, melt butter and add diced onion, bell peppers, and celery.
Saute until onions are translucent.
Add flour to saute pan and stir until thick.
Loosen slightly with approximately a cup of shrimp stock.
Add heavy cream- sauce should still be pretty thick.
Add raw shrimp and continue to simmer until cooked through.
Add unwashed cooked crawfish tails- again sauce should stay thick
Add granulated onion and garlic, Crab Boil, and sugar.
Taste to test spice level- adjust more if needed.
Chop fresh basil, oregano, and rosemary and add to pan.
Add diced yellow and red bell peppers.
Simmer 10-15 min.
Pour over fried grits squares.
