Three delicious slow cooker breakfasts

A slow cooker fills a house with the smell of breakfast any day of the week. Here are a few ideas for breakfast meals that you can make in your slow cooker.

3 delicious slow cooker breakfasts

1. French toast casserole

This slow cooker version is healthier than traditional French toast because it eliminates all of the butter that is typically used in the frying pan. You can use just about any kind of bread for this recipe, and it's a practical way to use up some bread that might be going stale.

Chop 10 to 12 slices of bread into small pieces, then lay them on the bottom of a slow cooker that's been coated with cooking spray.

Whisk together:
5 eggs
350 ml milk
90 g of brown sugar
5 ml each of vanilla and cinnamon

Pour this mixture over the bread, coating all of the pieces. Cook the casserole on low for four to six hours. In the morning, top it with maple syrup and fresh fruit.

2. Fruity oatmeal

Combine 90 g of uncooked old-fashioned or steel-cut oats with 950 ml of water in the slow cooker. Add 225 g of whatever fresh fruit you have available. Try strawberries, blueberries and bananas for a summery blend, or chop up pears and apples for a traditional fall mix.

For an energizing boost of protein, add a few handfuls of nuts, such as chopped walnuts, slivered almonds and pecans. Mix in five ml each of cinnamon and brown sugar. Stir the ingredients until everything is well blended and cook on low for eight to nine hours.

3. Classic egg casserole

Create a breakfast classic with eggs, bacon and cheese. In a bowl, whisk a dozen whole eggs and add salt and pepper. Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray and fill with 10 to 12 slices of bread that's been broken up into pieces. On top of the bread, layer 230 g of crumbled, cooked bacon, then pour the egg mixture over it. Add a top layer of shredded cheddar cheese and cook on low for six to seven hours.
