  • 4 Cups of Water

  1. Select the saute setting on your Instant Pot. Adjust for high heat.Add water, garlic, salt & pepper and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the grits ¼ cup at a time while stirring constantly after each addition. Select saute setting, reduce heat to low and cook for 15 minutes, stirring quite a few times. Stir in whipped butter and cooked bacon. After butter melts, add all remaining ingredients. Cook for 10 more minutes or until heated through.
  3. This makes 4 servings at 5 Freestyle Points. Enjoy!
