Enjoy A Stress Free Easter Morning With a Crock Pot Breakfast – How To Cook In Pain
Enjoy A Stress Free Easter Morning With a Crock Pot Breakfast – Easter mornings are a special time. Maybe you head out with your family for a sunrise service at your local church, or maybe you wake up to the excitement of young children ready to go Easter egg hunting. Either way, the last thing you want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen cooking up a big breakfast and then having to clean it all up afterwards.
Instead, you want to relax and enjoy a yummy meal with your loved ones for breakfast. There’s an easy way to do just that. Put your crock pot to work and save yourself some time and energy, so you can enjoy the rest of the day.
Keep It Simple With Baked Slow Cooker Oatmeal
Oatmeal is always a breakfast favorite around here. It’s quick and easy enough to make in the slow cooker for weekend breakfasts throughout the year, but you can also make it special for Easter (or any other important day) with special add-ins and toppings like chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruits, whipped cream and the like.
Start with the basic recipe. 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 flavors and serve. We like ours with apple sauce and cinnamon. For a special Easter treat, you could set out small bowls with various fresh and dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips and anything else that sounds tasty in oatmeal.
Get Ready For A Busy Day With A Hearty Breakfast Casserole
If you know you’ll have an early Easter dinner with the whole family, it may make sense to skip lunch and opt for a big hearty breakfast or brunch instead. Here’s an easy way to have your big breakfast cooking while you sleep.
Before you head to bed, fry up a pound of bacon. Allow it to cool a bit and chop it up. Dice a small onion while you’re at it. Crack open a dozen eggs and whisk them up 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 some of the hash browns in the bottom of the crock. Top with some 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 or lunch.
