Eating brunch at home is admittedly more work than ordering brunch at a restaurant. But slow-cooker brunch recipes make an at-home brunch party so much easier. There’s no shame in indulging in restaurant brunch when you’re in the mood, but there are definitely benefits to staying home. For one thing, it’s cheaper. Plus, it’s BYOB.
If you want to plan a brunch party but also want to make sure that you don’t lose your mind cooking eggs and baking muffins the morning of, these delicious CrockPot recipes are here to help you out. Many of them can be assembled the night before, so all you need to do before your guests arrive in the morning (or early afternoon) is set out plates and make sure the drink situation is covered. Others have shorter cook times and are best assembled the morning of, but you’ll still have plenty of free time while your slow-cooker does all the work.
So go ahead and invite some friends over for brunch next weekend, then take a look at these delicious slow-cooker brunch recipes and decide which one is calling your name.
