Crockpot Breakfast Casserole

Crockpot Breakfast Casserole - FamilyFreshMeals.com -

What can I say, I’m on a roll with my crockpot! This breakfast recipe is the BEST! You wanna know why?

Well, you put all the ingredients in before you go to bed, set your crockpot and wake up to a kitchen bursting with heavenly smells, and a warm, hearty meal. No fuss, just scoop onto a plate with a side of fresh fruit, and you have yourself a beautiful breakfast.

Here are my suggestions. When the casserole was done, I wish I had added a bit more salt and pepper. So my suggestion is to add salt and pepper to taste on each hash brown layer. Nothing crazy… just a pinch of each to season each layer. Go light, because you can always add more when you serve it.

Also, feel free to play around with the meats. Use bacon, sausage, ham…or heck.. ALL THREE! hehe. The vegetarian bacon I used was great and I can’t wait to try a sausage one next.

Hope you enjoy!

      I MAKE THIS WITHOUT THE EGGS AND I USE THE CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP BUT ALSO ADD A LITTLE SOUR CREAM. IT IS OH MY GOODNESS SO GOOD. NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT USING MEATS WITH IT AND ALSO USING THE CROCK POT. MY RECIPE IS JUST THE POTATOES ONIONS AND CHEESE AS A SIDE DISH FOR DINNER. I AM GONNA TRY THIS FOR SURE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR RECIPE. LOOKS GREAT

    2. They have fake eggs at most stores. They’re actually not bad

  3. Can I halve the recipe if so how long do I put it on for. It just seems a lot for two people.

      Or you can cook it at full size, then freeze the leftovers in individual servings…. Voila! Homemade breakfast bowls! 🙂
