Breakfast.  It's the most important meal of the day (you knew that didn't you?)  And yet so many of us struggle to eat it every day.  Seems like it's just hard to carve out those few extra minutes some mornings to get something warm and nutritious into your tummy before the day starts.  That's where these Slow Cooker Breakfast Recipes from food bloggers can be a big help.

I visited food blogs all over the web to find a collection of recipes that includes different types of oatmeal, french toast, pancakes, breakfast casseroles, egg dishes, grits, coffee cake, granola, and breakfast risotto.  Some of the recipes cook overnight and are ready the next day; others cook in a few hours and can be reheated in the morning.  Bookmark or pin this page and when you notice you're getting a little behind the breakfast 8-ball, come back here and get another good idea for breakfast in the slow cooker.  Enjoy!

  2. Lydia, it's definitely not something I've experimented with that much either, but I love the idea of it, especially when you're having guests.

  3. So many great ideas. I'm thinking I need to convert the breakfast risotto recipe in to a pressure cooker recipe.

  6. I've never thought of doing a breakfast casserole in the crock pot; I usually use the same type of ingredients for breakfast muffins. I bet this would reheat in individual portions just as well, though. and it's much easier to clean than all the muffin cups!

  7. Debbie, I haven't tried it either, but I'm definitely going to!

  8. Hi. Many look so nice but not all of these recipes are made from scratch! I've seen two now at least where it requires you have some ready made mix or ready made cookies to put in it which is kind of disappointing. I'm going to try the german pancakes now I think :)

    1. I guess I am confused. I just clicked through on every recipe and I don't see any that require ready made cookies. Yes, the coffee cake uses a gluten-free flour mix and the fresh toast uses bread (as does any French Toast recipe). But they are definitely mostly from scratch with regular pantry ingredients.
