Slow Cooker

Pour Into Slow Cooker

Breakfast Cure was created in a 1.5-2 quart slow cooker. When using a large or wide crock, add an extra 1/2 cup of water.


Pour contents into your slow cooker, add water, stir, cover, and set to low (approximately 170 degrees Fahrenheit), and cook for 7-12 hours.

Slow-cooker instructions, including the recommended number of cups of water, are listed on the back of each packet.

Pressure Cooker

Instant Pot and measuring cup

There are many good ways to cook Breakfast Cure in an instant pot or any rice cooker with a porridge setting.


  1. Set pressure to low, close the vent and follow the time and water amounts on the back of each packet.
  2. For Mango Sticky Rice, Masala Chai, and Dark Chocolate another option: set the pressure to high, cook unvented for 15 minutes, let rest 10 minutes, vent and stir well before serving.
  3. If you have it, use the slow cook normal setting and cook overnight.

How to Find the Right Cooker for You

We love small dedicated breakfast slow-cookers, and we also recommend choosing a model with a “warm” setting because it gives another option if the low setting is too hot, cooks too quickly, or burns. Be sure the crock is removable for soaking to make cleanup quick and easy. Little slow cookers should be easy to find for $25 and under at hardware stores, etc.

I am spoiled using my fancy Japanese rice cooker with a porridge setting because I use milk instead of water.  Using milk adds a creamy taste to porridge that doesn’t happen when cooking with water.
