Steel cut oats never looked so decadent! All you need is your slow cooker, oats, hot cocoa mix, brown sugar and chocolate chips for maximum chocolate goodness. Guaranteed to please all brunch attendees.


5. Slow Cooker Mexican Breakfast Casserole

Easy-peasy and spiced just right! This recipe features the fiery flavor of chorizo sausage. To amp up the heat to en fuego mode, you can add jalapeno or chopped chipotle chile in adobo sauce. If you want your lips to puff up like Kylie Jenner’s, go the adobo route.

However, it is true that both dishes are amazingly yummy and a slow cooker is the method by which the French toast yum is made for your face to enjoy.
