Crock Pot Parmesan Cheese Grits baked in a Pie Pan

This may sound complicated, but it's really not, or maybe it is to some people, but well worth it if you like Grits. The Basic Grits are cooked overnight in a Slow Cooker. They are mixed with a variety of ingredients and baked in a Pie Pan.
Texans love Grits, well, most of us do.
I have several Grits recipes on the Blog. Someday I'll create a Grits page with a collection of the recipes.

Slow Cooker Parmesan Grits baked in a Pie Pan

Prepare the grits in a 5 quart Slow Cooker and cook overnight.

2 C Stone Ground Grits
8 TBS Butter (1 stick) melted
1 TBS Salt
6 C Water

Pour all of the ingredients into the cooker and mix well.
Cover and cook on Low for 8 hours.

When the grits are cooked, here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
1 - 10" Pie Pan or 1 - 9" Deep Dish Pie Pan, sprayed with a Non Stick Cooking Spray.

In a large mixing bowl:
4 C of the Grits
1 C of your favorite Marinara Sauce
1/2 C Grated Parmesan Cheese
3 Large Eggs, beaten.
Whisk well.
Spread evenly in the Pie Pan

Bake 60 minutes.
Serve Hot with your favorite Entree.
I eat them with Fried Eggs and Vegetarian Bacon.

Peace in the Kitchen!
