  1. Shrimp and grits
    Fried green tomatoes
    Pimento cheese

    1. I LOVE this Southern BBQ Shrimp recipe from the 7/06 edition of Bon Appetit (

      It's ridiculously easy and so tasty. Basicly you combine melted butter, lemon juice, worcestshire, Old Bay seasoning & brown sugar and use half of it to toss into a bowl of shrimp. Put shrimp w/ shells intact in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet and broil shrimp in oven for about 2-3 mins. Serve w/ remaining butter mixture for dipping and crusty baguette slices for dipping - yum!

      -Pork bbq sliders on mini biscuits w/ a dollop of coleslaw

      1. I'm sure you could do something nice with mac&cheese as an app. bruschetta maybe or I've seen it deep fried as a mac&cheese popper.

        1. Egg salad on toast
          Deviled ham on celery
          Small fried green tomatoes - you could top it with a red pepper mayonnaise
          Mini corn pancakes topped with sour cream and chopped country ham
          Stuff won ton wrappers with cooked collard greens and country ham and fry
          Buttermilk chicken strips - you could even serve it with warm cream gravy as a dipping sauce. That's about as southern comfort as it gets!
          Watermelon slices, or even pickled watermelon rind

          1. deviled eggs, pickled shrimp, blackeyed pea salad, rolls w/ pulled pork (vinegar bbq sauce), corn muffins...
