Slow Cooker Breakfast
Crockpot recipes might be my best friend. Is there anything better then throwing everything into one pot, turning it on, and walking away? Nope.
Have you ever made a breakfast casserole in the slow cooker? We hadn’t until recently, and we were so excited that it was simple and delicious.
This recipe calls for cheese, hash browns, eggs, milk, sausage crumbles – all of the best breakfast flavors combined into one amazing meal! This simple casserole was thrown together in minutes and would be great for any breakfast, brunch or holiday.
How to Make Crockpot breakfast casserole
LAYER. Begin by layering half the frozen potatoes, half the bacon or sausage, and 1 cup shredded cheese in your greased crock pot. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to season everything.
Repeat these layers one more time. Evenly sprinkle the remaining 1 cup shredded cheese over the top of all the ingredients.
COOK. Put the top on and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. You can also cook it on high for 3-4 hours depending on when you need to serve it. The eggs should be set and thoroughly cooked when it’s done.

my kids love this breakfast casserole. I’ll make it and have it ready for them before shcool. it’s so easy and a perfect breakfast for quick morning.
This sounds amazing, and I am so ready to try! Is there a reason why you opted for frozen spinach and not fresh?
It was delicious and will definitely make this again. We are going to try your Italian Chicken crockpot meal next!
Frozen is quick and simple, but you can totally use fresh as well if that’s your preference. Glad you enjoyed the dish! Hope you enjoy the Italian chicken too.
So, I used 2 lbs sausage, 1lb on each layer, about 15 free range eggs only because some are from bantam hen and some from a guinea. 1 lb shredder hash browns browned on each layer. A lot of cheese on each layer and I did dice and cook 1 large sweet onion with the sausage and on final layer, 1 can diced tomatoes and green chilis. Cooked this for a potluck and of course did everything night before and added eggs next morning
