I made this recipe, last weekend, for our school league's state volleyball tournament hospitality - where the coaches, referees and support staff eat during the busy day. They were WONDERFUL...I even had people who said they didn't "like grits" tell me they were delicious. I used yellow, stone ground grits and my one and only variation was to add cooked bacon to the grits when I stirred in the cheese.
Best grits I've tasted and easy to make. I did add one large clove of minced garlic and stirred it in the mixture prior to cooking. The grits may be a little dry at the end of the cooking cycle. If so, just add some milk or cream. My daughter, who is not a big fan of Southern cooking, had seconds. Great recipe.
Made this for a family reunion alongside fried fish and a few other dishes and it was a hit! I did set my crock pot to high though to get a thicker consistency. Will definitely make it again.
Boy, I thought I had reviewed this a long time ago! First made these for a brunch bridal shower and they were excellent! Since then I've made them for other events and everyone loves them!
I have made this recipe repeatedly for family and friends. The grits always receive rave reviews. I have had several people who say they don't like grits say they love these. They are perfect for serving small groups of people. Great for the holiday season.
