15 Crockpot Breakfast Ideas
f you’re gluten-free or vegan then make sure to add this Creamy Apple Cinnamon Crockpot Oatmeal recipe to the top of your meal planning for the week! And if you aren’t, you should still try it!
It’s a creamy, fluffy, and hearty breakfast – perfect for chilly mornings or when you’re looking for a healthy breakfast that tastes delicious while also being good for the waistline!
This Crockpot Breakfast Casserole is from Family Fresh Meals. It’s another hearty breakfast option that you can set to cook before going off to bed the night before.
Wake up to a house full of your favorite breakfast casserole aromas as well as a fully made meal that can be scooped onto plates with zero fuss. That’s definitely how I like to start the day!
If you’re a cinnamon roll enthusiast like I am then wait till you try your very own Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll Casserole!! It’s the kind of recipe that doubles as a delicious breakfast/brunch meal or as an equally inviting dessert!
This simple cinnamon roll casserole includes a creamy egg custard…I can’t think of anything better to wake up to!
Frittatas are another fantastic slow cooker breakfast option. You don’t have to worry about any finicky crust while you still get that egg-custard filling that’s packed with the likes of bacon, Swiss cheese and spinach.
This is a winner for Sunday breakfast or brunch as well as easy and relaxed dinners.
If you’ve been hesitant to cook steel cut oats then using the slow cooker is the fail-proof option.
This Cinnamon Apple Steel Cut Oats recipe is a great example of a “set it and forget it” kind of meal that you’ll wish you’d tried ages ago. Just add all the ingredients to the crockpot and cook overnight, leaving you with a breakfast in the morning that smells just like hot apple pie!
Granola is definitely a popular breakfast option, but did you know that most commercial granolas are loaded with high amounts of sugar? This Slow Cooker Vanilla Coconut Granola will quickly have you opting to make your very own from the comfort of your kitchen with no-fuss and maximum reward.
This granola recipe is gluten-free, vegan, and allergy-free! Enjoy it as a healthy breakfast or snack that you won’t need to feel guilty about.
If you’ve ever wondered how to best use that leftover ham after holiday celebrations then why not try this Easy Crockpot Leftover Ham and Potato Hash?
I love nothing more than making additional tasty meals for the family with leftover ingredients since I hate wastage (not to mention that it saves a ton of time using leftovers than cooking from scratch). This recipe is also a sneaky-good way to add in some extra veggies into your family’s diet (where are you, shredded zucchini?!).
If you’re following a low-carb or keto diet then this Crockpot Zucchini bread is a calorie-friendly alternative to other high carb breakfast breads.
It’s a yummy moist bread that can be enjoyed fresh from the crockpot or toasted to be served with eggs and bacon.
This Slow Cooker Pumpkin Latte is another one from Family Fresh Meals. Who knew that you could make one of the most loved seasonal beverages in your slow-cooker?!
When the air is crisp and the season calls for all things pumpkin, this is my go-to hot beverage that I love waking up to. To be honest, though…I do tend to make this delicious Pumpkin Latte throughout the year and why not, right?!
If coffee is something closely associated with starting a new day then I see no reason why this Slow Cooker Coffee Cake recipe should be left off the list of Crockpot breakfast ideas!
Similar to a dump cake, this coffee cake is ideal for busy mornings when you’re in the mood for something extra indulgent without fuss or effort.
This Crockpot Butternut Squash Oatmeal is another delicious oatmeal recipe to keep close on hand. It’s a fall-favorite breakfast recipe that’s creamy and satiating…filling your belly with nutritional food while filling your house with the aromas of autumn.
Ever wanted to try your hand at homemade yogurt? If so, then why not let your slow cooker do it for you?!
This step-by-step tutorial explains the exact process for making your very own Homemade Crockpot Yogurt. It’s way easier than what you may think!
This Crockpot Pumpkin Bread Pudding is another fall-favorite! It’s loaded with pecans and is super creamy from the use of pumpkin puree. Serve it warm from the slow cooker on those chilly mornings.
Kielbasa (or Polish for “sausage”) is a hearty slow cooker breakfast option that only requires 7 simple ingredients including breakfast favorites such as: cheese, sausage, and potato. While kielbasa comes in beef, pork, chicken or a blend, I suggest sticking to beef as a healthier option.
For a more traditional take on the breakfast hash brown, be sure to check out my recipe for Crockpot Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole! It’s creamy, unapologetically stocked with carbs and ready for the breakfast table with very little effort on your part!
