"I will cut this recipe in half and put it in my little crockpot and perhaps shorten the time a bit."

"I'd love to try this. What are the chances of cutting the recipe in half, has anyone tried it with success? Editing to add....I tried it for breakfast this morning and I have to tell you this is delicious! My BIL was here from out of town and only last night did I find out he's not a big 'oatmeal fan'....gulp. But I went ahead with it anyway. My first comment was, 'it tastes like an oatmeal/raisin cookie' and I got agreement from both DH and BIL. I stuck to the recipe exactly (no need to half it) and I will also concur that (at least for my slow cooker) 7 hours was perfect. Great recipe...thanks! :)"

"I tied this and it didn't turn out too good but I'm going to try it again and tweak the amount of oatmeal and liquid. I think it just cooks too long for my cooker, so maybe I just don't need to cook it as long either. I loved the idea of waking up to breakfast being done."
