For the creamiest grits without cheese or butter, try Slow-Cooker Stone-Ground Grits. The slow cooker creates this creamy side with no fuss.

How to Make It

Stir together grits and water in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Let stand 2 minutes, allowing grits to settle to bottom; tilt slow cooker slightly, and skim off solids using a fine wire-mesh strainer. Cover and cook on HIGH 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until grits are creamy and tender, stirring every 45 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

Ratings & Reviews

Great option for grits!

I am a bit of a grits snob, but these make the grade. I reduce the salt to two teaspoons and cut the butter to 1/4 cup. After the cooking time, they will need a vigorous stir and then they are ready!
