Imagine waking up on a Sunday morning to the smell of greasy bacon and butter-filled mushrooms all prepared and ready to go with very little effort. It seems like a dream right? Well good news is, it’s super easy and all you need is a slow-cooker.
The inventive kitchen appliances are normally turned on in the morning, bubbling away during the day cooking a casserole or a delicious roast for dinner. But one person has changed things up, using the appliance to cook the perfect hot breakfast.
Rose Bowler recently took to Facebook to share the genius idea that was initially posted on a slow cooker group on Facebook. Since then the post has gone viral with mums, dads, grandparents and young adults all eager to try it out for themselves.
“Wow! What an amazing idea someone has shared in the slow cooker group,” Rose wrote. “Make sure the meat is leant against the edge for it to brown. I am definitely going to try this.”
The post ,which includes two photos, one before cooking and one after, shows sausages, bacon, baked beans, mushrooms and tomatoes all lined up perfectly in the slow cooker so they cook through over night.
The smart-thinking cook, kept the ingredients seperate by using mugs to hold the baked beans, tin tomatoes and pieces of mushroom with a knob of butter on top. While the sausages and rolled-up bacon are placed against the side of the slow cooker to ensure crispiness.
After cooking away throughout the night, the final result looks mouth watering. An absolutely delicious breakfast with crispy bacon, buttery mushrooms and hot baked beans.
The post has received plenty of attention, with over 27,000 shares, 8,700 likes and 25,000 comments, many of which claim how keen they are to try out the inventive cooking hack.
“Yet another reason to get one [slow-cooker],” one person commented. While another tagged someone else and wrote: “Told you we need a slow cooker”.
Others are even planning ahead, thinking when to cook up the delicious breakfast for special events. “Would be a nice start for Christmas morning after opening the pressies,” someone added.
