  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 hours. Stir before serving. Add a bit of boiling water, if necessary, if too thick.

  • If desired, serve hot cereal topped with milk, yogurt, brown sugar and/or almonds. Cereal can be chilled up to 2 days and reheated; thin with milk or water to desired consistency.

For Easy Cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
