The Perfect Sunday Brunch

One of my favorite brunch to prepare when I have weekend guests is my New Orleans style shrimp and grits. Recently I’ve been making my grits in a slow cooker which tends to make them much more creamier without a lot of work on my part.

Here is my brunch recipe. Try it and let me know your thoughts below. I bet you will love this dish as much as I do.

Slow Cooker Shrimp and Grits

Ingredients

  • 6 Cups Chicken Broth or Stock
  • 1 1/2 Cups Yellow Grits
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Thyme or 2 Teaspoons Fresh Chopped Thyme
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1 Cup Light Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 Ounces Light Cream Cheese
  • 2 Pounds Raw Shrimp
  • 3 Tbls of Olive Oil and 3 Tbls of Butter to saute Shrimp and to use for topping on grits
  • 2-3 Scallions (Green Onions)

Directions

  1. Combine chicken broth and grits in slow cooker
  2. Add all other ingredients except shrimp, cheddar cheese, and green onions and cook on low for 3 Hours.
  3. Stir periodically to prevent lumps (If grits have absorbed all the liquid, add some more broth. It will depend on your slow cooker.)
  4. Add cheddar cheese toward the end of cooking.
  5. Saute scallions and shrimp in butter and oil for 5 minutes until done and use for topping on plated grits.
  6. Garnish with extra cheese and/or green onions and thyme
