Our escape on a chilly evening? The slow cooker. Come home to our favorite main dishes, sides, appetizers, and drinks that are sure to soothe your family with the simple joys of comfort food.
You may not think of using your slow cooker for breakfast, but it’s a great helper when it comes to the morning meal. Think of serving your family a warm bowl of fruity, cinnamon-spiced steel-cut oats—on your busiest weekday morning. That’s right: Just load your ingredients in, and start the cooker right before you go to bed. When you wake up, breakfast is ready and waiting. You can double the recipe for times when you have weekend guests. Be sure to use traditional steel-cut oats; quick-cooking steel-cut oats and rolled old-fashioned oats won’t hold up after the long cook time.
