CrockPot Breakfast Risotto
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3 little apples (I had 2 greens, and 1 red in the house)
- 1 1/2 t cinnamon
- 1/8 t nutmeg
- 1/8 t cloves
- 1/4 t kosher salt
- 1 1/2 cups arborio rice
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 4 cups of liquid. I used a tiny can of apple juice, and half and half for the rest.

I used a 4 qt round crockpot for this dish.
Turn your crock to high and add the butter so it can start melting. Wash and cut up your apples while it begins to melt.
Add the rice to the butter, and stir it around to coat it nicely. If the butter isn't completely melted, don't worry. Mine wasn't either, and it didn't seem to make a difference.
Add the apples, and spices. Stir in the juice/milk.
Cover and cook on high for 3-5 hours, or on low for 6 or so.
I was really surprised how long it took---I needed to cook it on high for 4.5 hours---and since I just made the rice and beans, I thought it would cook as fast as that dish did.
