Slow Cooker Christmas Breakfast

So let me tell you why this should be your Christmas morning breakfast. It takes 6 hours in the slow cooker. Let’s face it, you’ll be up until midnight playing Santa Claus anyway and your kids will be up and at it come sunrise. 6 hours sounds perfect. Not to mention this is basically a dessert that we just call breakfast. It’s a holiday! Treat yourself! Did I mention this will only take 5 minutes to put together? Psh, and use yourself a crockpot liner and you won’t even have to clean! I’m even going to share a slow cooker trick from my upcoming slow cooker book as a little Christmas present. The side opposite the control panel is the hot side and burns things like breads. Take a 12 inch piece of aluminum foil and fold it in half, lengthwise, 3 times so you have an 8 sheet barrier, 2 inches tall, 12 inches long. Just put that in the crockpot on the hot side, right there in that stoneware bowl. It’ll keep your ingredients from touching that extra hot spot and lessen your chances of burning your food.

 

Oh, and this recipe comes from my cookbook! You could always buy yourself a copy as a present to yourself. Slow cooked meals all year long!

Merry Christmas!
