Re: crock pot breakfast
Crock pot French toast is a favorite here! I made one this weekend with the store bought Pepperidge Farm cinnamon swirl bread. OMG!! 4 adults + 2 kids ate the entire thing!
I've also done the hashbrown casserole where you mix in lots of eggs, a meat and cheese. DH and I really liked it but our toddlers did not.
We tried grits this weekend (in an inner bowl w/a water bath) and that was a complete flop! Nothing worse than thinking the crock pot is cooking your breakfast and everyone having to wait when it doesn't work out!
