One thing my family loves is breakfast for dinner! So I often find myself dreaming up ways to put a twist on breakfast basics so dinner is just a bit different. We recently enjoyed an amazingly easy and delicious Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole that I just threw together with some of our favorite morning foods!
Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole
One thing I love about this recipe is that I can use my slow cooker! Slow cooker recipes are great for those busy days when you want to get a warm meal on the table for your family, but you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen preparing it!
What You Need:
- 1 package Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns
- 1 lb breakfast sausage
- 12 eggs
- 1/3 cup milk
- 2 cups cheddar cheese
What You Do:
- Spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
- Pour Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns into the bottom of the slow cooker.
- Brown and crumble your breakfast sausage (or use precooked) and layer on top of the hash browns.
- Whisk eggs together with milk and pour over hash browns and sausage.
- Top with cheddar cheese.
- Cook on LOW for 4 hours or until cheese is melted and eggs are set (be sure to check the middle of the casserole!)
I save even more time on the prep of this slow cooker breakfast casserole by using precooked and crumbled breakfast sausage. I can just throw it in after I layer the hash browns.
And I always reach for Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns because they are fresh and never frozen. It really makes a difference in this recipe! They are made with real ingredients and are great to have on hand for a variety of recipes because you don’t have to do any peeling or shredding!
So look for them in the refrigerated dairy section when you go shopping for this recipe!
While I love an easy recipe for busy nights, it has to be one that the family will eat! While Justin and Grambo are pretty easy to please, the kids can be more challenging. I’m always on the hunt for recipes that we will all enjoy!
Great news! This slow cooker breakfast casserole was kid-approved! In fact, I couldn’t feed Carrigan fast enough! Weston was even willing to have a few bites which is a huge accomplishment for my picky eater.
So, I would definitely call this one a win! Justin already asked me when I would be making it again and if it was easy enough for him to put together.
