Most of the time, we use our crock-pots to make dinner, but using a crockpot or slow cooker for breakfast makes the morning rush much easier.
I like oatmeal, especially with fruit and raisins, and usually eat some every morning. I’ll have to admit though, my family doesn’t share my love for oatmeal. So I usually have it during the week when I’m not cooking a big breakfast for them.
This oatmeal has apples, cinnamon and raisins, but it’s easy enough to change the ingredients to suit your taste.
- 3 cups Cold Water
- 1 Apple, cored, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch chunks
- 1 1/2 cups Old Fashion Oatmeal (not quick cooking)
- 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 cup Raisins
- Combine all ingredients in the crockpot before going to bed.
- Cook on low overnight, 8-10 hours.
- Serve with milk.
Note: The directions that I found at cd kitchen, did not say to spray the crock pot with cooking spray, next time I will definitely do this. Also, the raisins were a little mushy, I would maybe add them a little later, or when you get up, maybe an hour before you eat. You could also boil them on the stove for a couple minutes and then just stir them in.
What’s your favorite breakfast?
