Sometimes the easiest way to make a meal is to use a crock pot or slow cooker. This is a great way to make a family meal that even the littlest members can enjoy. The foods you can cook and the meals you can make in a crock pot are not limited to stews, rice dishes or chili. Think outside of your crock pot and get into breakfast making!
In my book The Wholesome Baby Food Guide, I have a warm and wonderful recipe for overnight crock pot oatmeal. Making oatmeal in the crock pot overnight is a great way to ensure that everyone eats a warming and hearty breakfast. Oatmeal is a great grain for babies too. Now forget about the oatmeal and look at this new recipe. This hearty breakfast is quick to whip up and is as simple to make as pour, cover, turn to low and go to bed. I like that! You may get lucky and end up with a firm texture but, sometimes this recipe yields “Crock Pot French Toast Bread Pudding” which is still divine and still a great breakfast for babies who are 8 months and older to enjoy.
In this particular turn, I woke up around 5am and saw the most glorious rise of French Toast-y goodness bubbking up to the crock pot lid. I should have turned it off but alas I did not. I awoke to find bread pudding, We promptly scooped some out, drizzled with maple syrup and enjoyed it with hot coco. Yum!
For babies: This recipe contains eggs and dairy as well as wheat. These ingredients are suitable for the non-allergic baby between 6-8 months of age with 8 months of age being the best. Please consult your pediatrician about any foods that you wish to offer your baby.
