Learning Benefits

A breakfast that cooks up while you sleep may sound like a dream, but these dishes make it a reality. At night, coat the inside of your slow cooker with cooking spray. Then, just add the ingredients for the recipe you choose. Cook on low for 8 hours. In the a.m., stir several times and let cool for at least 5 minutes before serving. Each recipe makes four to six servings.
