    Duh! If one has cut a crockpot recipe in half does the cooking time also need to be adjusted? The full recipe calls for 10 hours cooking time. Thank you so much.

    Hi JKC,
    You may also want to post your question in the Crockpot forum http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=35
    It depends on the recipe. I personally wouldn't cook anything for 10 hours in a crockpot, so even without seeing the recipe, my guess would be that you should cut the time down.

    What are you cooking? If it is a roast and you are cooking one half the size I would think cooking time would be reduced quite a bit. Perhaps search out some similar recipes with smaller quantities and see what cooking times are recommended. Or, I am sure if you give us some ideas what type of recipe you have, someone can give you an approximate time.

    Ah, you hail from Texas. So do I. Hot, huh?

    I forgot about the Crockpot Forum.

    The recipe is #133826. Thought I'd try it 'cause I'm tired and wanted to wake-up to breakfast tomorrow. Maybe, if you have the time, you could look at it and give me your opinion. Thanks, LonghornMama.

    The recipe is #133826. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated. Ten hours does seem like a long time, doesn't it.? I don't really know though. I am a dunce when it comes to some of the finer points of cooking. Thanks, Toadflax.

    Hi JKC! August is the worst time to be in Texas, but I know I'll appreciate it in November when everyone else is snowed in! icon_biggrin.gif
    Crockpot Breakfast recipe #133826
    First, I would spray the crock with nonstick cooking spray. Also, it should be at least half-full, according to Crock-It by Barbara Murray. Keep in mind that newer crockpots cook faster (at a higher temp). For a newer 3 1/2 qt or 4 qt crockpot, I'd check it between 4 and 6 hours. You may want to use the timer function if you have one, or plug it into a timer. Just don't leave it off the heat for more than 2 hours.
    Sounds yummy! Let us know how it turns out! icon_biggrin.gif

    Well, I "winged it" and I think I actually succeeded. It was light and airey...almost souffle-like. I had problems with sustained moisture, so added a little more milk. The aroma was divine....not to mention so nice to wake-up to.

    None of us could figure out how to eat it (Couldn't imagine just putting it in a bowl), so we did the old Texas stand-by. We served it in tortillas and had breakfast tacos with mild hot sauce. It really was good. I am wondering if I could use sausage next time, or would that just grease-it-out?

    Crockpots are a wonderful thing.

    Thanks a million for your tips. You helped a lot...perhaps more than you will ever know. icon_biggrin.gif

    It does sound good. Glad it worked for you! icon_biggrin.gif
    I'm sure you could use sausage, just cook and drain first. Or ham. Or chorizo.

    That recipe sounds very good, did you end up halfing the recipe and if so how long did you end up cooking for? Thanks!
