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.

Other ingredients to add

Change it up by adding a few of these ingredients…

  • bacon
  • turkey bacon
  • bell peppers
  • onion
  • monterey jack cheese

This can be made in the oven. Layer all of the ingredients in a 9×13 baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Eggs should be cooked through when it’s all done baking.

SERVING & STORING

So many options to serve with this casserole, but some of our favorites include:

STORE your leftover breakfast casserole in an airtight container in the fridge. It should last 3-4 days!

FREEZE any leftover cooked breakfast casserole. Just keep it in a freezer-safe container and it will last 2-3 months.

    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!

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

      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.
