I am always trying to make myself like oatmeal, I haven't tried it this way.

The sausage looks wonderful too!

One day I might actually have a crockpot recipe that YOU haven't provided :) I'm just now discovering the wonderful help a crockpot can be.

My kids just love oatmeal and lately the price for instant is really high. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I will have to try to make it one day. When you say put it up before you go to bed how many hours do you normally put it up before it gets dry and yucky tasting?
