Why Make Breakfast in the Slow Cooker
The slow cooker has a way of cooking everything from the inside out. Each flavor gets steamed into every nook and cranny. No flavor is left behind in the cooking process.
The best part of it is that you can have slow cooker breakfast for two, or you can feed a crowd.
The next best part is that you can leave your breakfast cooking in the crock pot overnight. Then in the morning, you are awakened to a heavenly aromatic breakfast.
The crock pot is going to spoil you by making breakfast while you sleep. You may even start to make breakfast every day in the crock pot, or maybe you just want to use it for weekend mornings when you can sleep in for an extra hour.
Either way, you are going to need some recipe ideas! Here are a few recipes that will make your life easier.
Easy Slow Cooker Breakfast Recipes
Slow cooker recipes are generally easy to make because they are all about dumping the ingredients. No fussy formalities or intricate processes needed. That's my kind of recipe! When you have the right combination of ingredients, your slow cooker recipe will turn out amazingly delicious!
Breakfast is my favorite meal, but I never have time to actually cook in the morning. So I put together this collection of classic breakfast recipes with a twist. The twist is that they are made in the slow cooker.
From French toast to cinnamon rolls to frittata, this list has some of the most creative slow cooker breakfast recipes you will find.
What classic breakfast recipe would you like to try in your slow cooker?
Crockpot Breakfast French Toast
This is my go-to Sunday morning breakfast to make. My family is a huge fan of French toast, and they devour this slow cooker French toast every time I make it.
It takes me 10 minutes or less to put the ingredients in the crockpot. Then 5 hours later, VOILA! It's yum-time!
Imagine waking up to ready-made French toast with cranberries and apples!
Crockpot Breakfast Casserole
Some days, you just want a hearty breakfast recipe that will carry you well past lunch time.
This breakfast casserole by Recipes From My Pantry is filled with sausage, eggs, cauliflower, and CHEESE!
I like hiding veggies in breakfast casseroles. In the past, I have hidden mushrooms in my breakfast casserole and everyone gobbled it up without complaint.
Did I mention that she put extra cheese in her recipe? She has me drooling just looking at the photos!
Crock Pot Cinnamon Rolls
Cinnamon rolls made in the crock pot?? Yes, its possible!
Jenny at Cook Eat Go created a delicious cinnamon roll recipe that she cooked in the slow cooker!
The cinnamon rolls turn out gooey, soft, and deliciously chewy. The hardest part of making these cinnamon rolls is pouring the glaze over the rolls - because it's hard to not eat it right off the spoon!
Slow Cooker Scrambled Eggs
This is a recipe by Southern Living that completely got my attention. Not only did they make the PERFECT scrambled eggs, they give you the DO's and DON'T's of making it.
The eggs look so fluffy and soft, don't they?
Slow Cooker Breakfast Soup
You haven't lived until you have tried a hearty, warm breakfast soup. Meaghan from 4 Sons R Us made this chicken, sausage, bacon and potatoes!
This soup is perfect for those cold mornings when you have to wake up before the sun. The cold weather won't bother you a bit after you have had a breakfast this good!
Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole
There are so many wonderful things happening in this recipe by Kellie of the Suburban Box. She has made French toast from cinnamon rolls and tops them with a delicious icing!
Everything about this recipe says 'my perfect comfort food'. Luckily, the recipe is super easy to make. It takes only 5 minutes to fill up the slow cooker and the recipe is ready in only 4 hours!

Slow Cooker Eggs and Cauliflower Hash
What's better than a tater tot hash casserole? A healthier version made with cauliflower crumbles!
Lauren from Nutrition Starring You has found the way to my heart by making this childhood favorite of mine. We used to eat eggs and potatoes all the time, especially in the fall.
Now that I am older, this healthier version of my childhood favorite made me bookmark the recipe immediately. So delicious!
Slow Cooker Breakfast Chicken
As you know that chicken cooked in the slow cooker is my favorite way to roast a chicken. And I confess that, in general, chicken is my most frequent ingredient to use in the slow cooker.
So, when I saw Shiny Aura from TeaBreakfast make chicken in the crock pot for huevos rancheros and breakfast burritos, it got my full attention.
This chicken can be put into many other breakfast recipes as well! It would be perfect for omelets and breakfast casseroles. So many ideas...I am excited to experiment with more breakfast chicken recipes!
Pssst.... have you checked out my huge collection of cheap chicken recipes? If you like chicken, you don't want to miss it!
Slow Cooker Granola Recipe
If you are on the keto diet, it is a challenge to get low-carb breakfast recipes. Bintu from Recipes From My Pantry has you covered with a healthy breakfast granola recipe.
She made this granola in her slow cooker! How awesome is that! Granola is always expensive and I never get all the ingredients I want.
With her recipe, you can make it your own by varying the ingredients in the granola with some of your favorites.

Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole
If your family is like mine, they love ham and cheese everything!
From sandwiches to omelet and everything else, they devour it. So I know they will love this ham and cheese breakfast casserole made in the slow cooker.

Slow Cooker Frittata Provencal
I have made ham and cheese frittatas before, but never in the slow cooker! You know that I am going to make this recipe ASAP!
Frittatas are one of those dishes I like to make when we have friends coming over for Sunday brunch. Its a quick recipe, yet very filling. Our friends scarf it down and I didn't have to spend hours making it.
This recipe by Taste of Home is super easy to make any day of the week! Are you a frittata fan?
Slow Cooker Oatmeal Recipes
Cooking oatmeal in the slow cooker is a very common technique. Bloggers are huge fans of making steel cut oats, rolled oats, and oatmeal crisps in the slow cooker.
Here are some of my favorite oatmeal recipes made in the slow cooker. Each recipe has a uniqueness about it that will make you fall in love with breakfast all over again.
Slow Cooker Maple Cinnamon Oatmeal
I can't tell you how many mornings I have started with eating this yummy and hearty cinnamon oatmeal. It's a quick breakfast recipe that happens to be healthy too.
Sometimes, I will add fruits like bananas, berries, kiwi, apples, or really any fruit that is in season. How would you top this oatmeal bowl?
Slow Cooked Honey Crisp Apple Oatmeal
Amy of Mom Advice used steel cut oats in this oatmeal recipe and made my mouth water!
She makes good use of the slow cooker for this recipe by adding all kinds of fun fall ingredients.
Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oatmeal
What would a fall breakfast be without a little pumpkin spice!
Whenever I feel like a little pumpkin spice, I toss the ingredients into my slow cooker, and four hours later, this breakfast is ready to be gobbled up.
Chai-Spiced Steel Cut Oatmeal
Julie of A Hostess at Heart is obsessed over oatmeal and for good reason! She is really good at making the most unique oatmeal recipes.
For example, this warm bowl of chai-spiced steel cut oatmeal is a breakfast that's perfect for a cold, crisp fall morning. It will warm you up and give you energy for hours.
Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oatmeal
My favorite part of this steel cut oatmeal is the cream cheese on top. Cream cheese on oatmeal is so much better than on bagels!
