This is the 14th recipe in my yearlong series “26 Weeks Of Slow Cooker Meals” Make sure you check out all my easy slow cooker meals at my Crock Pot Recipe page.
So last week I brought you an appetizer recipe for the slow cooker. In case you missed it, it was my incredible Loaded Tex Mex Chili Dog Queso Waffle Fries. That is a mouthful but once you taste them, you will want to keep your mouth full. Well, this week I am going another direction with my crock pot. BREAKFAST!! I have been trying to come up with an overnight slow cooker recipe for a while. I got the inspiration for my Slow Cooker Overnight Derby Pie Oatmeal Recipe because The Kentucky Derby is coming up in a few weeks.
We live about 90 minutes from Louisville, Ky and the Derby is big day around here. This recipe will be a great addition to serve your guests Derby weekend or just another awesome recipe for your crock pot.
Kentucky Derby History Alternatively referred to as “The Run for the Roses” or “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports,” the Kentucky Derby is a 1.25 mile race for three-year-old thoroughbred horses. The Kentucky Derby draws an average of 150,000 visitors each year, including residents, out-of-towners, celebrities, presidents, and even members of royal families.Kentucky Derby History:The first Kentucky Derby race occurred in 1875. Close to 10,000 people watched as 15 thoroughbred horses ran what was then a 1.5 mile course. In 1876, the length of the race was changed to 1.25 miles. By the early 1900s, owners of winning Kentucky Derby horses started sending their winners to run in the Preakness Stakes in Maryland and the Belmont Stakes in New York. In 1930, sportswriter Charles Hatton coined the term “Triple Crown” in reference to the same horses running the three races consecutively. Courtesy of Kentucky Derby Facts and History from about.com
