Slow Cooker Steel Cut Eggnog Cranberry Oatmeal

I have been trying my hardest to get the up all day long, but having two little ones running around makes it a little hard sometimes. Today just happens to be one of those days.

I had a big bowl of this for breakfast this morning and have been dying to tell you about it, finally I have a chance to. This is beyond scrumdidlyumptious! With the flavor of eggnog that I used it gave this a TON of flavor. I did load up more on the cranberries in mine, but it is totally up to you how much you put in. Personally I love them, so the more the better. 

This would be perfect to make overnight to have ready for Thanksgiving morning or Christmas Eve. 

Your star ingredients. 

Throw it all in a crockpot, give it all a stir, set on low and cook for 5 hours [time will vary]. 

This is what is looks like when it's done.
