Recipe

Grease the inside a slow cooker with a thin layer of butter, to help prevent sticking. Place all ingredients in the slow cooker and give them a stir to combine. Cook on low for 8 hours. If possible, occasionally give the mixture a stir to stop it burning on the sides.

To serve, divide mixture into bowls and add desired toppings. Leftover mixture will keep in a container in the fridge for a few days. If you need to reheat, add a small amount of milk or water to the mix and reheat for a couple of minutes in the microwave or on the stove.

Serves 6.
