The Simple But Important Step For Perfect Slow Cooker Eggs

Eggs are a breakfast staple that are not only tasty, but are also nutritious. Per BBC Good Food, eggs have numerous health benefits that include being a source of nutrients such as vitamins D3 and B12, as well as essential amino acids, and protein. Eggs can also be made in a variety of ways — hard boiled, fried, poached, or scrambled to name a few.

Not only can they be served in numerous ways, they can also be made in different cookware, although the skillet is a popular way to cook eggs, you can also whisk them into a baking dish for a quiche or in muffin tins for individual scrambled servings. Sometimes you want to prepare them in a way that's easy and in a hands-off kind of way. And that's usually by cooking them in a slow cooker as a way to feed a crowd or for an easy weekend meal like a breakfast casserole.

Prevent sticking by using this method

If you've never made eggs in a slow cooker, it may seem unlikely that it's a great method of preparing them. But as Greatist explains, because these devices work by cooking things at a lower temperature for a longer timeframe, it generally preserves the moisture and tenderness of the dish. And when it comes to eggs, especially when they're scrambled, a moist and tender end product is highly prized.

However, you want to take one preventative step to ensure eggs don't stick or burn to the edges of your slow cooker. According to Fit Slow Cooker Queen, butter is a must when cooking eggs in a slow cooker, as the blog article further details, cooking spray simply isn't as effective for preventing eggs from sticking. If you don't want to use butter, you can still prevent sticking without adding any extra fat or oils. As Moms Budget points out, lining your slow cooker with a slow cooker liner bag can not only prevent eggs from sticking, but also means quick, easy clean up.
