Easy Crockpot Shrimp and Grits Recipe! You won't believe how easy it is to make this delicious Southern comfort food in your slow cooker.
Crockpot Shrimp and Grits
The July 2014 issue of All You Magazine had this great Crock Pot Shrimp and Cheese Grits Recipe and I couldn't wait to try it! It is so easy to make and tastes great.
Imagine my surprise when All You Magazine reached out and asked to feature us in their magazine. I might have squealed with excitement while reading the email. I am super excited that we were featured in All You Magazine for making this recipe. We are towards the front of the magazine and there is a picture of me along with the Crock-Pot Shrimp and Cheese Grits Recipe.
Can I tell you it is really really weird opening a magazine and seeing my picture in it? I truly never imagined that I would be published in a national magazine when I started blogging. Totally crazy!
This is one of our favorite slow cooker recipes. It is so easy to make and looks amazing when served to guests.
You can pair your shrimp and grits with great side dishes including cornbread, cheddar bay biscuits, sour cream muffins, 7-up Biscuits, salad, southern collard greens, sauteed spinach, southern succotash, baked apples, air fryer brussels sprouts, tomato salad, corn salad, fried okra, or coleslaw.
It is really up to you what sounds epic.
- Salt and pepper
- Heavy cream
- Shredded cheddar cheese

Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time. This helps make sure your dinner cooks perfectly and you don't have to stress about what time it is going to be done.

Curious about what kind of grits you used for this recipe? Also do you put in uncooked grits with it all? I've never cooked grits and wasn't sure!!
Thank you in advance!
Is there a product that has the favor of hot sauce but not the heat? Or is there a substitute that has a similar flavor but not hot?
Shrimp/cheese grits: your recipe services how many? Any idea of calories etc.
Thanks for info

That looks really good. I don't think I've ever tried grits before.
I've never really developed a taste for grits, but the rest of my family loves it. Didn't realize you could make it in a crock pot!
I was just in New Orleans, and Shrimp & Grits was a really popular dish. It was pretty good, and now I can make it at home!
Yum, I'm pinning this. I love shrimp and grits, but have never tried them together.
I haven't used my crock pot in forever because the one I have is a bit too big. This looks delicious!

i love shrimp, it is one of my favorite seafood dishes. This looks amazing for lunch or dinner!
There are dished out there that sometimes make me wish I weren't kosher. This is one of them. That looks sssooo good.
Sounds like a unlikely combo but looks amazing!

I agree you would think the 2 would not go together but I am sure it really works great together! Yum!
This recipe is perfect for a nice date night dinner. It's unique and delicious!
Congrats on being in All of You. This looks like a great recipe, I can see why they picked it. I use my crock pot all the time in the summer.
