Slow Cooking Thursday!!!

Welcome to my weekly Crockpot Recipes Exchange. It's such a great way to share your favorite dishes or to learn some new ones to make for your family.

What do you think??? Do You have some great recipes to share, or perhaps you're looking for some delicious ones to give you a reason to pull out the ol' crockpot???
Time to pull out those crockpots and put them to good use. If you want to join in, just grab the banner and add your name to Mr Linky :)

For today I picked the theme "Breakfast", so I'm going to share with you a couple of breakfast recipes that you can fix in your crockpot, I mean imagine throwing everything in there, turning it on and waking up to wonderful yummy breakfast.

I've decided to shake things up a bit so I'm thinking that starting next week, I'll give you a theme and you can share your today it was Breakfast, then next week we'll do Crockpot Desserts so you can all gather your recipes in time. Now it doesn't mean you can't continue sharing your normal recipes, but just add an extra one to go with the theme....what do you think????

If it's something you guys aren't interested in then no biggie, we won't do it LOL

I always enjoy my visit to Slow Cooking Thursday. Great recipes.

Sandra...Sorry, I didn't see the theme until I had already posted. I haven't made a breakfast casserole or item in the crockpot (except oatmeal that failed horribly). I think yours and one other look so good and can imagine when Matt's family is here for the weekend, piling the stuff in the crockpot before bed and breakfast will be made for me!

Hi Sandra! Sorry I didn't post a breakfast recipe. I try to stick to recipes I've made before and if you can believe it I've never made breakfast in my crockpot. I'm going to have to try that soon!

Hope your day is happy :)

I didn't do a breakfast recipe, but will be sure to do dessert next week...Sorry! I like that breakfast casserole idea. I am going to try that GFCF for this weekend.

Hi Sandra,
I didn't post a breakfast recipe yet but will soon. I did a great post on meal planning made simple.

I have to admit I've never even thought of doing a breakfast in my crockpot. What a great idea! And yummy recipes here. I just may have to give it a try!

annie said...

I just put this breakfast casserole ingredients in my crockpot to be ready for us in the morning. I'm so excited to wake up and have breakfast made for me... yea!

Mandi said...

Those recipes all looks so good, and they're timely too because just this morning my husband was asking me if I have any breakfast recipes for the crockpot. I think I'll make the breakfast casserole for Sunday.
