Creamy Shrimp 'n' Grits

(4 Votes)
3 Hr 30 Min

Everyone loves using the slow-cooker when we come out with dishes like this Creamy Shrimp 'n' Grits. It's melt-in-your-mouth tender and oh-so-smooth! Mmm mmm!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups uncooked regular grits
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can Cheddar cheese soup, undiluted
  • 1 bunch scallions (green onions), chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound cooked, peeled, and deveined medium-sized shrimp (see Notes)
What To Do:
  1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a lightly greased 5-quart slow cooker.

  2. Cover and cook on LOW setting 3 hours.

  3. Remove lid; stir grits, and add shrimp. Cover and cook on LOW setting 30 more minutes. Garnish, if desired, with additional sliced scallions.


You'll want to use cooked shrimp in this recipe to ensure a creamy dish. If you cook the shrimp in the slow cooker, you'll end up with watery grits because of the liquid that seeps from the raw shrimp. The seafood department at your local supermarket will steam the shrimp for you. Or, if you prefer to cook your own, start out with 2 pounds uncooked shrimp in the shell.

Better than any we've tasted, even in New Orleans!

I have never had grits. I think it is about time I give them a try. This sounds yummy.
