Crockpot Express Grits

Comfort food at it’s finest!! Grits are great for breakfast, brunch, or a side dish when you are having a big spread for the holidays. What do you love to add into your grits?? We opt for butter and cheddar cheese with some chives on top but that is totally up to you.

You can really use any pot you have at home. As long as it is electric and has the high pressure function it will work well. Serve it as is or add cheese, butter or even some grilled shrimp with them!

This is a great basic recipe for easy Crock pot Express grits that you can add whatever you like to, all you need is:

  1. This pot that will fit inside your CPE pot

Are Grits better with Milk or Water

That is totally up to you but with this you use both. Water to cook it in so it can fluff up and then get it creamier at the end with some dairy mixed in there. You’re going to;

  • Pour 1.5 c of water inside your Crock Pot Express or pressure cooker. Put trivet inside as well.
  • In your cooking pot (that fits inside your CPE) mix together grits, melted butter, 2.5 c. water, and salt, chives, and pepper if desired.
  • Put foil over that pot and secure tightly on top. Lower on to your trivet and close your lid and steam valve.
  • Push multigrain, high setting, for 15 minutes, then press start.
  • Do a quick release and carefully lift pot out.

Uncover and add shredded cheese. Stir until melted. Add milk and stir, add more if you want it “soupier”.
