Making dishes in your slow cooker is a super convenient way to prep meals for a party, especially when there are a million other things to do in the morning. Make sure you keep these slow-cooker tips handy for when you cook one of our best slow-cooker breakfasts, so your meal prep goes smoothly!

  1. For some slow-cooker recipes like our irresistible Slow-Cooker Cheesy Potato Breakfast Casserole, adding a kitchen towel over the top of the slow cooker before covering with a lid will help prevent condensation from dripping onto your hash browns while cooking, ensuring crispy potato goodness.
  2. For recipes like our Slow-Cooker Cheesy Potato Breakfast Casserole, Slow-Cooker Tex-Mex Breakfast Casserole and other savory egg or potato bakes made in the slow cooker, rotating your slow-cooker insert halfway through cooking can help prevent the casserole from getting too brown around the edges.
  3. Remember: all slow cookers can vary, and some are oval-shaped while others are more round. Follow the recipes carefully and check at minimum bake time for doneness and adjust from there.

The slow cooker is one of our favorite kitchen appliances, and for good reason! It can make breakfast dishes, soups, dips, casseroles and even dessert! Explore all of our best slow-cooker recipes and try one out tonight.
