Wondering how many this recipe serves??
Hello! You will find the serving size of all the recipes in the upper right hand corner of the page, but I am happy to share with you that this recipe serves 8. Happy Crocking!
I was wondering what accounts for the variance in cooking time? Is that something to do with altitude, or just a preference? Don’t want to give my family food poisoning from cooking too little, but don’t want to overcook it either 🙂
Tracie both High and Low reach the same temperature, the only difference is that High reaches the temperature much faster, therefore it cooks it faster. Both temperatures are safe. Happy Crocking!
Hey! I am wondering how 2 tsp of mustard can go on 14 slices of bread. Am I reading that wrong? Thanks so much!
Allison, you need to make it very light, too much mustard will take away from the taste. It may take a little more, but be careful not to add too much! Happy Crocking!
how does the bread not get soggy or gooey? just wondering
Ginny it just doesn’t, unless it is undercooked. I will tell you in my crock pot it only takes about 7 hours… all depends on your crock pot. I make this sometimes for the evening meal too, as we like it that much! Happy Crocking!
I make this for Christmas every year. I prepare it the night before and it cooks while we open gifts. I then make white sausage gravy to serve with it. This is going to take some stress out of my holidays. I have 2 crocks and can make the gravy and casserole without worry. Thank you for this awesome site. With my husband in the Middle East and two children, crockpot cooking has become my life. i just run out of recipes. I love crocking!!
If i needed to almost double the serving size can I do that in one crock pot?? will it take longer to cook?
Hi Michelle! You can double the recipe, but you will need to use a larger crock pot, maybe a 6 1/2 – 7 quart. The key to crocking is to make sure you crock is 1/2 – 2/3 full for it to crock properly. If you have it this full it will crock in the same length of time. Happy Crocking!
If I break down to half of the ingrediants does that. Cut cooking time?
Hi Erin… It does not cut down on cooking time, as long as you are using a smaller crock pot. Rule of thumb is to make sure your crock pot is 1/2 to 2/3 full to crock properly.
Well I left it in for ten hours and its supee burnt 🙁 maybe my crock pots seen the best of its days or doesn’t know the diff between low n high. Guess I got crock pot happy lol I made the cola chicken n that turned out wonderful
I see that most of the recipes use the oblong/oval crocks. I have one of the older ones that are more of a circle and straight up and down. Does that make a difference?
Katie it does not matter. The oval slow cookers are great when making bread and you are able to put your bread pan inside the oval shaped slow cooker. But for a traditional recipe, it does not matter if it is oval or round. As you will see in my picture, I still have my round slow cooker. 🙂
Hello, Does this need stirred while cooking or just let it cook without stirring? Thanks in advance
It doesn’t need to be stirred. I usually don’t crock this recipe for as long as it states, so you can turn it to warm before it is time for your breakfast. Enjoy!
what size of squares do you suggest when cutting the bread? I was thinking of cutting each slice into for squares?
Sound good John! I believe it cut it in 8 squares, but the four will do! Happy Crocking!
Yellow or dijon mustard?
Audra I used yellow mustard, but make this recipe your own, if you would like to use dijon… enjoy! Happy Crocking! 🙂
How long if cooking on high?
Hi Lynn, it really depends on your slow cooker, as some slow cookers cook hotter than others, but if your slow cooker crocks pretty true to the time for recipes, you should crock it for 4-6 hours on High. You will also need to watch it to make sure it does not burn on high! Enjoy and Happy Crocking!
I need to feed a large crowd of youth at my church. Have you ever doubled the recipe? If so, how did it turn out? I’ll be using the large oval crock pot.
Hi Chris, I would suggest if you can borrow another slow cooker, it may be to your benefit to make two slow cookers with this recipe. The key is to make sure your slow cooker is 1/2 to 2/3 full to crock properly. Also all slow cookers crock differently, so you may want to check this a little early to make sure it does not burn. Hope this helps, please feel free to check back if you need further help. 🙂
I am going camping and looking for breakfast recipes and wonder do you think I could bake this and if so how long and what degree, the day before and then the next day place on fire to reheat.
Yes Donna, you can bake this recipe, but I am not sure what temp or how long, maybe you can find a similar recipe that will help you. 🙂
Also what kind of bread?
Donna, I used a white bread, but you can use any bread that you normally do at your house. Happy Crocking!
Do you layer mustard side up?
Tina I have some up and some down when I make it, I don’t really try to make it all up or down. Happy Crocking!
