Cremiest Slow Cooker Polenta

Preparation time: 5 minsCreamiest Slow Cooker Polenta

Cooking time: 2 hrs, 5 mins

Serves: 4


1 cup whole milk

1 1/2 cups half-and-half

2 tablespoon unsalted butter

1/3 cup coarse polenta or corn grits

1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

Ground black pepper

1/2 cup Grated Parmesan cheese



  1.  Spray the bowl of a slow cooker with nonstick pan spray.  Turn on the slow cooker to high.
  2.  Bring the milk, 1 cup of the half-and-half, 1 tablespoon of the butter, the polenta, salt and pepper to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, whisking constantly to avoid lumps.  Cook until the polenta begins to thicken, 2 to 3 minutes, and then transfer it to the slow cooker.  Cover the bowl and cook on high until the polenta is very thick and creamy, about 2 hours, giving it a quick stir every 30 minutes.
  3.  Heat the remaining 1/3 cup half-and-half in the microwave until it’s warm, about 15 seconds.  Remove the cover from the polenta and whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon butter, the warm half-and-half, and the Parmesan.  Serve immediately.
