Copycat Another Broken Egg City Grits

When I went to Sandestin with my friends, we ate breakfast at Another Broken Egg. Everyone got the City Grits and loved them. Grits, smoked gouda, bacon, tomatoes and green onions – what’s not to like?! I decided to make my own version at home.

You really should give these grits a try, even if you think you don’t like grits. You can customize the grits to your family’s taste. If you don’t like smoked gouda, just use your favorite cheese in its place. We both loved these grits, and I loved how easy they were to make! Fix it and forget it! My kind of side dish!

How to Make Slow Cooker Smoked Gouda Grits

These grits are super easy to make. Combine stone ground grits, chicken broth, onion powder, and garlic powder in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours. Stir in smoked gouda cheese into the grits. Season with salt and pepper. Top the grits with chopped tomatoes, cooked bacon, and green onions.

  • This recipe uses stone-ground grits. Do NOT use quick-cook or instant grits in this recipe! Look for Bob’s Red Mill Stone Ground Grits at the grocery store.
  • I used smoked gouda cheese but you can use any cheese that you prefer.
  • For a vegetarian dish, use water or vegetable broth and omit the bacon topping.

Comments

  1. Just made them, but substituted with instant grits,(short notice). I did not have smoked gouda on hand, but added a dash of hickory smoke liquid and used cheddar. Turned our great.

  2. What brand of grits do you use? The ones I bought don't say quick-cook, but I'm afraid they aren't the right kind. The cook time is 10-12 min.

  3. These sound great and I didn't realize they could be cooked in a slow cooker without frequent stirring.

  4. I have never tried grits (I've been under a rock I guess), but I cannot ever pass up Gouda-it is my favorite! The fix and forget totally sold me on this side dish!
