1/2 cup diced onions
1 green pepper diced
3/4 lb. cheddar cheese diced
1 dozen eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
salt & pepper
Layer the frozen potatoes, bacon, onions, green pepper and cheese in the crockpot in two or three layers. Finish up with cheese. Beat the eggs, milk and mustard, salt & pepper together. Pour over the whole mixture. Cook on low for ten to twelve hours. This served 10 people. I served fresh fruit and toast with it.

In skillet, lightly brown beef and onion in the oil, drain well. Place in greased crockpot, stir in remaining ingredients except eggs, milk and cheese.

GRANDMA JACKSON'S BREAKFAST CASSEROLE
6 beaten eggs
10 slices of bread (use 5 slices of bread for every three eggs and use two eggs per person)
1 1/2 cups of skim milk
2 cups of grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 lbs. sausage
Salt & pepper
Boil sausage for five minutes in a pan filled with water. Pour off the water (and much of that yucky fat) and brown and crumble the sausage. Drain remaining fat. Spread mustard on one side of the bread and cut bread in ninths. Beat eggs and milk together with salt & pepper to taste. Spray inside of crockpot with nonstick cooking spray. Layer bread, cheese & sausage in crockpot. Pour milk & egg mixture over everything. Cook on low 8-12 hours.
2 cups milk
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup chopped apple
½ cup raisins
½ cup chopped walnuts
Grease the inside of a slow cooker crockpot. Put ingredients into crockpot and mix with whisk.
Cover. Just before going to bed, turn on the crockpot, at "low" speed. The cereal will be ready for
morning. Serve with milk. Serves 4.
1 c. oatmeal
1/3 c. raisins (opt.)
2 1/4 c. water
(Other options, apples, cinnamon, nuts.) Spray crock pot with non-stick spray. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. When the raisins cook with the oatmeal it sweetens it, so adjust the amount of sugar or sweetener. 4 servings.
1/3 cup oats (regular not quick)
1/3 cup each of two of the following : Oat bran, couscous, quinnel, buckwheat, grouts, cracked wheat, rolled barley, granola, or whatever else type of grain I have on hand.
1/2 - 1 cup of raisins ( I like raisins !)
2 1/2 cups of water (can't do milk)
a good sprinkle of cinnamon
Spray the crockette with cooking spray (sides and bottom), put the grains and cinnamon in, add water, put lid on, and plug in/start before you go to bed (9-10PM or so for me). Let it cook while you sleep and wake up to a nice pot of oatmeal mix in the morning (for me about 6AM). You may double or triple the recipe if you wish. Rule of thumb is for every cup of grains you use, you need 2 cups of water/milk. I add a tad extra due to it cooking all night. Turns out great. There are so many grains you can buy bulk through grocery stores and/or health food stores. Try all sorts. You may use as many different grains as you want to equal the 1 cup of grains. I usually use 3 different ones, but I've used 4 different kinds before too. You may also use different kinds of raisins (regular or golden), dates, cranraisins, dried or fresh fruit, etc. Add or use different spices.
SAUSAGE & EGG CASSEROLE
2 eggs per person
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 pound smoked sausage or cooked breakfast sausage
2 slices of cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onions, including green ends
1/8 cup pimento (Optional)
Brown sausage and leave in the bottom of a deep pot. Scramble eggs, onions and green pepper together and pour over the sausage. Place in an oven or on stove top covered. Oven should be 300 Max. Stove top on low. When solid add cheese to top and allow to melt. Crockpot version: I used 18 eggs and 1 pound of Kowalski Polish sausage and 1/4 cup of onions, green and yellow. I combined it all and 1 piece of cheese which I stuck down in the center and turned it on LOW at 11:00 PM last night. At 6:30 this morning the cooking was complete with a wonderful aroma.
2 Cups wheat berries
5 cups water
dash of salt
Cook all night on low. Before serving, can add sugar, honey, butter, milk, etc… Keeps in refrigerator 7-10 days.
