  • Summary

    The longer these beans cook, the more flavoful they are, so if you’re looking for a quick breakfast, consider cooking them in a small slow cooker overnight. Right before bedtime, get them started on the stove and then transfer them to a crockpot set to its lowest temperature. Add a little extra broth to keep them from boiling dry. In the morning, add the spinach, make your grits, and enjoy your breakfast!
