Crock Pot Oatmeal

How to Make Oatmeal in a Crock Pot

Goopy, warm, filling, and promoting regularity – no foodstuff has better adjectives associated with it. Oatmeal is also a great timesaver because it can be made well ahead of time. Slow cookers are a great way to cook oatmeal. Imagine dumping a few ingredients in your Crock Pot before bed and waking up to a delicious breakfast.
Step One: Besides the obvious one (owning a Crock Pot), you are going to need the ingredients for oatmeal. The ingredients can be altered and improved (imagine butterscotch chips in oatmeal). The following ingredients are a great place to start:
  • 1 cup oats
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (or to taste)
These ingredients should be available at any grocery store – even your local corner store. Try adding fresh or frozen fruit and level up your oatmeal's health power. Try cutting up a Snickers bar and adding it to your oatmeal if you would rather die happy than be healthy. To get additional ideas for making slow cooker meals, consider enrolling in an online culinary school.
Step Two: Add the oats and the water together inside the Crock Pot. Plug your Crock Pot in, turn it to low and go to sleep. While you sleep, the slow cooker will work its’ magic and turn your ingredients into a delicious and wholesome breakfast. Make sure that you have the setting on low so you don’t end up scorching the ingredients overnight.
Step Three: You will first need to be awake. Turn off (and unplug, if necessary) the Crock Pot (the smell may cause you to smash the lid on your floor in a fit of rapturous delirium, so make sure you keep the lid intact). After the lid is off and after your pre-breakfast revelry has subsided, stir in the salt, half and half and brown sugar to taste.
Step Four: Undoubtedly, you may already eaten a substantial amount of your delicious oatmeal straight out of the Crock Pot. Serve the oatmeal in bowls. A bowl will allow you to transport the oatmeal to another place. Bowls are the choice food container for online students because they can take their classes on their computer while eating.

Note: This post was not written by me, but it sounds yummy right? I am a big fan of oatmeal... especially with lots of brown sugar and/or in the format of a cookie!  I think I might try this recipe with a handful of raisins.....  -Cat

I did something similar last week but with steel cut oats instead of standard oats. It was even tastier.
