Wake up to a hearty breakfast, ready and waiting for you! A perfect start to a chilly morning.
- Mix all 3 ingredients in a 3 1/2 quart slow cooker.
- Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours overnight.
Full marks for this! Making porridge in the crockpot is a brilliant way of getting the best ou of rolled oats. My toddler even ate the whole lot in her plate which she doesn't normally do! Very nice not having to run around making things first thing in the morning too.
I put this in the crockpot at night knowing it would be cold and snowy in the morning and we would need something warm and substantial to have before we dug out and this was it! This was so warm and satisfying! I sprinkled some brown sugar over the top and it was delicious!
I followed this recipe exactly as is except for the cooking time (and I did not add an extra cup of water, as many suggested). I know that my Crock runs high and that most things cook in 3-3-1/2 hours on low to cook, so I put the oatmeal for 3 hours. It is fabulous! It really is creamy and it came out just how I like it. I love ooey, gooey, sticky yum yum yum!!! This texture is, of course, not for everyone, but I love fining gooey nuggets in my oatmeal/porridge s.
