If breakfast time in your house is anything like mine, there’s a prerequisite that it be quick and easy.
Even on our “slow” mornings, making breakfast just isn’t something I want to take the time to do, despite the fact that I love sitting down and sharing breakfast with our kiddos.
So, lately I’ve been relying on the slow cooker to provide morning meals that don’t take any thought or time to prepare. Just serve and go!
It started when I began to make Sunday Morning Slow Cooker Bread Pudding  to expedite getting out to door to church on time, and when I realized how well that worked for keeping our family organized in the morning, I started adding other recipes to the repertoire, of which Slow Cooker Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole  and Caramelized Apple Slow Cooker Oatmeal  tend to show up most often.
And of course, Beth Ricci’s e-book, The Breakfast Revolution , has provided on-going inspiration on the journey! I can’t even tell you how many times that book has solved a morning-time dilemma in my house.
The best part about my recipe for Pear and Ginger Slow Cooker Oatmeal is that it’s totally adjustable and you can serve it with whatever toppings you love.
Oh, and eggs in oatmeal?!? I hear you exclaim. I include eggs in this recipe for two reasons: one, they help the oatmeal have a better scoopable texture, and two, they provide a bit of protein, which at least in my family, is a necessary part of breakfast or everyone is clamoring for snacks about 35.7 minutes later.
It’s also a great recipe for kids to make themselves. You might have to cut the pears up for them, depending on their age, but measuring, stirring, and dumping are great ways to get your kids cooking!
