As I sat there sipping my eggnog-laced coffee the other day, I couldn’t help but think about all the other ways I could possibly enjoy one of my favorite parts of the holiday season*.
I love the holidays so so much. Every tiny little thing about them! Of course, I especially look forward to the food… and the eggnog!
So, I decided to take my favorite Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oatmeal recipe and turned it into Eggnog Oatmeal for the holidays! Oh My Yum!!! What a perfect breakfast!
Besides just loving the ease of this recipe (and how great it tastes!) I just can’t help but love how amazing it makes my house smell.
For a perfect morning, I set my coffee maker to automatic, throw some oatmeal together in the crockpot and get to wake up to sheer joy.
I have a feeling I will be making this breakfast a lot this winter… all the way through until the stores stop carrying eggnog!
Slow-Cooker Eggnog Steel-Cut Oatmeal Recipe
1 1/2 cups steel-cut oats
5 cups water
2 cups eggnog
1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
Stir everything together in your slow cooker. Turn on low and cook for 8 or so hours (while you sleep!).
When it’s done in the morning, it will still look a bit funny but give it a good stir and it will all come together perfectly!
