Why Just Have Grits When You Can Have WAFFLE MAKER GRITS?

Growing up in North Carolina, Grits was a staple food in our house.  It was never just a breakfast side dish.  Grits can go with everything.  I love my grits.  Today, we decided to see if my beloved grits could be WAFFLED!  I’m here to tell you, YES THEY CAN!   Want to express your southern side in a new way?  Be sure and try this recipe!


To make our  Waffle Maker Grits, it is a two phase process.  First you will use a crock pot to slow cook your grits overnight.

Phase 1:  Slow Cook Grits in Crock Pot


Ingredients Stone-Ground Grits – 2 Cups Melted Butter – 1/2 Cup Kosher Salt – 1 Tbsp Water – 6 Cups

Directions 1.  Stir together all of the above ingredients in crock pot 2.  Cover and Cook on LOW for 8 hours 3.  Your grits will look like this in the crock pot when done.  Stir just before serving

(Note:  For quicker crock pot grits, cook on high for 4 hours.)

Phase 2:  Waffled Grits


Ingredients: The ingredients are endless for this section.  Here is what we used. Overnight Slow Cooked Grits – approx 2 cups Gruyere Cheese – approx 1/2 cup Ham – approx 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese – approx 1/2 cup Melted Butter Non Stick Spray

Directions: 1.  Preheat waffle iron to medium-high. 2.  Stir together your slow cooked grips with first 3 ingredients (Prepared Grips, Gruyere & Ham) 3.  Spray hot waffle generously with non stick spray 4.  Place about 3/4 cup of grits mixture onto waffle iron. 5.  Close and cook 4 1/2 minutes or until grits are golden and crisp.

6.  Spread melted butter on top and then sprinkle with Cheddar Cheese, more Gruyere Cheese and more Ham. 7.  Repeat with remaining grits mixture.
