Hot Breakfast! Get Your Hot Breakfast!

Even kitties want hot breakfast! Especially in the cold weather part of the year, breakfast is important—hot breakfast! Hot breakfast can be so simple, too. Find your self a small crock pot. I have a couple of Crockettes that I picked up at thrift stores for a couple of bucks each. At bed time, I’ll any of a variety of things into the crock pot and le voila! Hot breakfast when I get up, all ready. Between that and the automatic drip coffee pot, it feels like God makes my breakfast, and is glad I am here.

Try these tasty breakfasts in a small crock pot. Most should feed two people.

  • ¾ steel cut oats, 2 ¼ cups water, dash salt, lump of butter. Can add any dried fruit or dried fruit combo that suites your fancy.
  • 1 cup millet, 2 cups water, dash salt, lump of butter or a glug of sunflower oil
  • 1 cup rice, 2 cups water, dash salt, lump of butter
  • ½ cup rice, 2 tablespoons sugar, dash salt, lump of butter; sprinkle nutmeg over the top
  • Find a small squash or bitty pumpkin, small enough to fit into the crock pot with room to spare; you’ll need to lift it out when it’s done. Cut the top off, cutting lowing enough that it’ll fit into the crock pot with the lid on. Clean out the guts. Sprinkle a little salt in the inside. Cut a little bit off the bottom to make it sit even if necessary—but try to find a squash that you don’t have to do that to. Now, break an egg into a dish and beat it well; add an equal amount of milk by volume, a couple of teaspoons of sugar and a dash of salt. Beat it all up good, and pour it into the cleaned out squash or bitty pumpkin you’ve already placed into the crock. Shake a little nutmeg over the custard in the pumpkin and put the lid on.
  • Find another small squash or bitty pumpkin, and clean and prepare it as above. Stuff it with sausage and diced onion, fried together.

If you need to feed more than one or two people, you can certainly try a bigger crock pot, though I’ve not personally done so. I don’t expect it would make any difference with the grains, just increase the measurements accordingly.

Remember all those people who told you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Well, now you know how to make it the easiest meal of the day, too!
