Slow Cooker Eggnog Oatmeal

      

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 80)

I keep playing around with different recipes and techniques for making oatmeal in the slow cooker.

First, I used old fashioned oats and the WARM setting to make Crock Pot Apple Oatmeal.

Then steel cut oats and a bowl set inside my slow cooker (to prevent scorching) to make Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal.

My most recent experiment is  slow cooker eggnog oatmeal, something I’d never even considered until seeing this on Slow Cooker from Scratch.

For this slow cooker eggnog oatmeal, I cooked steel cut oats overnight in my 2-Quart slow cooker set to WARM, which worked splendidly.

To serve, I drizzled on a little more eggnog and dusted the top with fresh ground nutmeg.

Since I’m the only one who really enjoys oatmeal, the leftovers are tucked away in the fridge until I’m ready to rewarm them for a quick and easy breakfast.

If you’re an eggnog lover, I think you’ll really enjoy giving slow cooker eggnog oatmeal a try. On Christmas morning, perhaps?

Enjoy!
