I love a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast and I love my crock pot! I tried one of those recipes that makes oatmeal in your crock pot overnight...as you sleep. It came out really good. You put all the ingredients for your oatmeal in your crock pot at night and set the crock pot to low and the oatmeal cooks while you sleep. Breakfast is ready for you in the morning...
Crock Pot Oatmeal...
Crock Pot Oatmeal
- 2 apples, sliced
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- pinch of salt ( I omitted this)
- 2 cups of oatmeal
- 2 cups of milk
- 2 cups of water
Layer the first 4 ingredients in the bottom of the crock pot that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Now, add the oatmeal, milk and water.
DO NOT STIR!
Cook overnight on LOW for 8 to 9 hours. I used an older crock pot that cooks slow.
Some of the newer crock pots cook way too fast in my opinion.
I put everything together and plugged in my crock pot at 11:00 at night.
When I came down to my kitchen at 6:00 the next morning my oatmeal was done.
Oatmeal looking and smelling delicious...
Breakfast is ready...
The kitchen smelled liked heaven and it was so nice to wake up to a delicious WARM breakfast all ready for me.
I put my crock pot on the "Keep Warm" setting until I was ready to eat. The oatmeal came out more like a baked oatmeal, but so YUMMY.
This recipe does make a good amount of oatmeal, which was way too much for me to eat for one breakfast. I put the leftovers in a plastic container and enjoyed the oatmeal over the next few days for breakfast.
The oatmeal heats up beautifully in the microwave.
I hope you'll enjoy this delicious breakfast.
Enjoy your day!
