CrockPot Breakfast Casserole makes your life a little easier! Easy to toss together and can be made the night before or a couple hours before you want to serve. Eggs, cheese, ham or any breakfast protein you love!
Ingredients to make CrockPot Breakfast Casserole –
(see recipe card below for detailed instructions)
- EGGS – one dozen large.
- HALF AND HALF – half cream/half milk. We find the addition of cream helps keep this breakfast casserole fluffy and not watery.
- HASH BROWNS – we used diced frozen Obrien Potatoes. However regular shredded or plain diced will work great!
- HAM – or cooked crumbled bacon or sausage.
- CHEESE – grated sharp cheddar or mexican blend.
- CHOPPED GREEN ONION
- DIJON MUSTARD – omit if you prefer. We like the tang it gives the eggs.
- TOPPINGS – sour cream, salsa and avocado to name a few!
How to make Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole –
We are simply going to layer the ingredients right into the slow cooker and boom!
- hasbrowns – to haste cooking time defrost if you are cooking for only several hours on high. Long cooking on low does not require defrost.
- cheese – layer half saving remaining for the top.
- ham – or cooked sausage or bacon
- green onion
- Repeat starting with hasbrowns then pour on the egg mixture.
- Set to low for about 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. (this will vary depending on how hot your slow cooker runs).
