As for how you do it, Ara writes: ‘Place all breakfast ingredients in the slow cooker like in the photo - bacon and sausages along the sides so they crisp up, (next time I will try using baking paper to help keep them from sticking to the sides).
‘Saucy stuff like baked beans and mushrooms into individual cups so they don’t end up a big mash. Mushrooms: I added garlic, butter, and a dash of cream. In the morning I put them on the stove top to thicken the sauce.
‘Hash browns - I want to try putting them along the edges as well next time to see if that helps them get crispy. They were still delicious as is.
‘I turned the slow cooker on low at 11pm, I got up at 8am and it looked like it had been ready for awhile. we ate at around 9am 🙂
‘The only things we had to do was toast the muffins and poach the eggs...oh and thicken the mushroom sauce.’
Love it! Not surprisingly, the brekkie was a big hit with the group’s other followers.

Added a third: ‘Genius!’
