Crockpot Breakfast

I’ve been experimenting with Crockpot Breakfasts because our schedule has gotten to the point that three or even four of us are getting out and about early in the morning but not all together or at the same time.  My family would rather sleep than fix themselves breakfast and most would rather sleep extra than get up earlier to eat all together with the earliest leaving person.

So I have attempted to have something in the crockpot overnight ready for breakfast.   I need more recipes though.  You can find several recipes using potatoes/bread, sausage/bacon and egg type ingredients which are fine for special occasions but not what I want for an everyday type breakfast.


So far I’ve only cooked items for around 6 – 7 hours.

Lift crock up in crockpot cooker by using canning rings to raise crock.

I also use my old crockpot which doesn’t cook as hot.

I’ve also tried using the crockpot liners.  They are too expensive for daily use.

I spray my crockpot with Pam before using.
