Use your slow cooker to make super easy and creamy grits. They cook while you sleep and are ready to be put on the breakfast table when you wake up.
- 1 1/2 cups stone ground grits
- 6 cups water
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 4-6 tablespoons butter, cut into 1 tablespoon-sized pieces
- 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
Lightly spray inside of a 6-quart crockpot with cooking spray.
Stir together grits, salt and water in the crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW for 7-8 hours.
Remove lid. Scatter butter on top. Use a whisk to stir the grits until they are an even consistency and the butter has melted.
Sprinkle cheese on top and add pepper to taste.
