Introduction

This recipe is ridiculously simple and and excellent way to start the day off right! I sometimes struggle to eat breakfast because I get so busy with the kids and don't have time to prep something I want to eat for myself. This solves the question of "what's for breakfast?" for everyone. Just throw everything in the crockpot before you go to bed and in the morning you have a healthy, warm, & tasty breakfast ready and waiting for you.
I have a family of six so this is the right amount for us. If you have a smaller family you can easily freeze portion sizes of this and pull it out the night before to reheat in the morning.
