If you are looking for a warm breakfast for kids & adults, give this recipe a try. My kids love oatmeal with applesauce and cinnamon and loved this breakfast risotto too. You can make a big batch and have it for the week and just microwave a portion in a bowl. I add applesauce on top to make it a perfect breakfast.
SLOW COOKER BREAKFAST RISOTTO WITH APPLES
3 apples, peeled and chopped ( use any kind of apples you like)
1/4 cup melted, unsalted butter
1- 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon ( pending on how much you like)
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups arborio rice
3 cups water
1 cup apple juice ( I used mots for tots, 40% less sugar)
Optional: 3-4 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce for each serving, my kids like applesauce on top of their oatmeal.
Melt butter in the microwave and place in slow cooker. Add rice to the butter and stir to coat. Add cut up apples, spices, brown sugar and stir in water and juice
Cook on high for 3-4 hours, check after 3 hours to see if all water/juice has absorbed and if rice is cooked.
