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. These cheesy grits are one of my favorite ways to eat grits. One bite of this simple recipe is sure to make you a fan of southern grits!

How to Make Slow Cooker Smoked Gouda Grits

These crockpot grits are super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a 6-quart crock pot combine grits, chicken broth, onion powder, and garlic powder. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours. Stir in smoked gouda cheese into the grits. Season with kosher salt and black pepper. Transfer grits to a serving bowl. Top the bowl of grits with chopped tomatoes, cooked bacon, and green onions.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • What kind of grits do I use? This recipe uses stone-ground grits. Do NOT use quick grits or instant grits in this recipe!
  • Look for Bob’s Red Mill Stone Ground Grits or Anson Mills brand at the grocery store.
  • I used smoked gouda cheese but you can use any cheese that you prefer. Parmesan cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, or pepper jack are delicious.
  • I cooked the grits in chicken broth for extra flavor. You can substitute 6 cups of water or vegetable broth.
  • Add a splash of hot sauce to the top of the grits for a kick.
  • Sometimes I stir in some corn kernels to the cooked grits.
  • Need the grits for breakfast? Cook the grits overnight and stir in the cheese the next morning.
  • For a vegetarian dish, use water or vegetable broth and omit the bacon topping.

  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!
