Outlaw Family Grits Recipe

Jimmy Outlaw
We love to make a big pot of G-R-I-T-S for family gatherings and holidays. Even if you think you don’t like grits, you might just love our J. Outlaw South Carolina southern grits recipe!


  • Large pot with lid. Can also be cooked in a crock pot.


  • 1 Large green bell pepper Chopped
  • 1 Large red bell pepper Chopped
  • 1 Large yellow onion Chopped
  • 1 lb. Kielbasa sausage Cooked and sliced thin
  • 1 cup Bacon Bits
  • 24 oz Old-fashioned grits Not instant
  • 1 cup Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup Heavy cream
  • Butter
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Tabasco or other hot sauce


  • Chop the vegetables and slice the sausage. Cook the sausage and drain on a paper towel.
  • Prepare the grits according to package directions, adding one extra cup of water so the grits are not too thick.
  • Once the grits are cooked, transfer to a large crock pot. Add the peppers, onions, sausage, bacon bits, cheese, and cream. Add a little more or less according to your own taste. Stir. Season with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, and as much (or as little) hot sauce as you like.
  • Reduce heat to low, and allow grits to simmer for the duration of the party. Serve with butter and additional hot sauce.
  • Enjoy!
