CHRISTMAS Morning CROCKPOT- Smoked GOUDA & GARLIC GRITS –

Play Santa, then sleep while breakfast cooks itself!

Table of Contents: BREAKFAST, EGGS, & CHEESE


Perfect breakfast recipe when morning preparation time is limited.   The grits are very creamy yet do not have cream in them!   Cooking overnight in the crockpot and the cheese give the creamy texture.

9 cups water

2 cups regular yellow grits (do not use “quick grits”)

4 small cloves garlic, peeled & halved

2 tsp. salt

5 oz. smoked Gouda or Goudam cheese, cut in slices

Butter or margarine, if desired

 

 

 

 

Put the water into a crockpot; then whisk in the grits.  Add the garlic and stir in the salt.  Cover the crockpot and cook overnight on the “LOW” setting.

 

In the morning, turn off the crockpot and stir the grits.  Add the Gouda slices and stir again for the cheese to melt and blend.

 

Serve the hot grits with a pat of butter on top.

 

Serves: 8 to 10.
