Delectable Slow Cooker Grits
This is my favorite way to make grits. So simple! Just a little prep work and then let the slow cooker turn your grits into a delicious, smooth base for any dish. Season as you wish with cheese, bacon, chives, pepper, etc.
Use a small or medium slow cooker.
You can use stone-ground grits instead. If using stone-ground grits, remember to soak them overnight before cooking. Do not use instant grits for this recipe.
Depending on the texture and flavor you desire, add the milk to even out consistency and give the grits a richer flavor (this is particularly good when making shrimp and grits).
Your grits might not take a full 2 1/2 hours to cook. Just remember to check and stir after 1 hour, and to add milk, heavy cream, and butter, when about 30 minutes of cook time is left.
