Save Time With a Slow Cooker Breakfast
Mornings are a hectic time of day for most people. The last thing you want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen cooking a big breakfast.
Instead, relax and enjoy a meal with your loved ones for breakfast. An easy way to save time in the mornings is to put your slow cooker to work the night before!
Slow Cooker Baked Oatmeal
Oatmeal is easy enough to make in the slow cooker for breakfast any time of year!
Use rolled oats in this recipe. The finished oatmeal will turn out better than using quick cooking oats.
Mix 2 cups of dry oats, 2 cups of milk, and 2 cups of water.
Add sugar, honey or the sweetener of your choice and mix.
Cook on low overnight for about 8 hours.
Add your favorite toppings such as chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruits, and whipped cream. A delicious combination of flavors to try is applesauce, cinnamon, and walnuts.
Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole
Here’s an easy way to cook your big breakfast cook while you sleep:
Before you head to bed, fry a pound of bacon. Allow it to cool and chop it into small pieces.
Dice a small onion.
Crack open a dozen eggs and whisk them in a large bowl. Add some salt and pepper to the eggs.
Get out your slow cooker and a big 32 oz. bag of shredded hash browns.
Spray the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray and layer 1/3 of the hash browns in the bottom of the crock pot.
Top with 1/3 of the bacon and ½ cup of cheese.
Repeat these layers two more times (omitting the cheese on the last layer).
Pour the egg mixture over everything and top with the last ½ cup of cheese.
Cook everything on low for 10 to 12 hours and enjoy when you are ready for breakfast.
