If you have read Mr. Mouses’s review on The Wave, you have probably seen our Bacon Cheese Grits recipe. It is a simple, if mildly time consuming, delicious breakfast staple at our house.
I have taken quite a bit of the work out of it and made them even more creamy by cooking them overnight in the slow cooker. As the salt and bacon bubble away in the water, they create a flavorful stock. The cheese gets thrown in just before eating, and each bowl gets crowned with a pat of butter! Yum.
2 cups water
1/2 cup 5 minute grits
1/2 tsp kosher salt plus more to taste
2 Tbs crumbled bacon
1 oz cheddar cheese (or maybe even double it if you are on vacation)
1 Tbs butter
1. In the bowl of your slow cooker, combine water, salt, grits. Turn on low.
2. In the morning, add the cheese to the grits. Cover and let rest for a minute. Stir well to combine. Add water to loosen if desired.
3. Scoop into bowls and top with a pat of butter
Each recipe Serves 1 super hungry person. It is very easy to double, triple, or even quadruple this recipe to make a super large pot of grits.
