Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

  • Cooking Time:

    7 hours
  • Servings:

    4-6

Ingredients

Meat: 1 lb ham, bacon OR sausage; cooked, degreased and crumbled/diced
1 small onion, diced
1 small bell pepper, diced
16 oz. hash browns, frozen
3/4 cup cheese, shredded (co-jack or cheddar are Crock Pot Girl's favorites)
6 eggs
1/2 cup 2% milk
scallions (Optional)
Salt & Pepper to taste

This recipe for Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole is one of my favorites! The fresh veggies along with hash browns, eggs, cheese and your choice of meat really make it flavorful. For best results, use a Crock-Pot® Casserole Crock or an oval slow cooker. (This may reduce crocking time by 1 hour.)

  1. Grease a large slow cooker or use a slow cooker liner.
  2. Layer ingredients starting with frozen hash browns followed by meat, onions, peppers, and cheese.
  3. Repeat layer twice and top with scallions.
  4. Beat the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together.
  5. Pour over the layered ingredients in the slow cooker (ensure everything gets moistened well)
  6. Cover. Cook on Low for 6-7 hours.

Happy Crocking!

Can this recipe be doubled for a crock-pot? And if it is, how does that effect the cook time?

I have two questions. First – what type of hash browns does this recipe call for (shredded or cubed)? Second – can this recipe be made without the onion and bell pepper?

I did not use the onion so I will let you know as soon as I try it. I got in the crock pot now.

I think I will try this using the Frozen O’Brien Hash Brown Potatoes that already have the onions and peppers included. Seems like it would save a step with the same desired result. You could also buy the bag of just plain hashbrowns (without the onions and peppers). My preference would be the cubes vs. the shredded kind.

I am wondering if you can substiture frozen potatoes O’Brian for the hash browns. This would eliminate the need to add onion and red pepper.

This sounds delicious! However, I have different sizes of crock pots. Do you use a specific size for all of your recipes? I’d hate to start layering and realize I need a different size…

Hi! I am cooking this overnight for a brunch tomorrow. Do you know if it’s ok if it sits for a few hours after it’s been cooked??

Thank you for the quick response! Also- if you double or triple the recipe, do you have to cook it longer?

WOW! Sounded great and I was interested until I saw the calories, sodium and calories from fat. Is there a way to make it less dangerous?

Hi! In my Sunday School class today one of our members, Crystal Baker brought this in for our breakfast…. very good! As a matter of fact, I asked for the recipe and she sent it to me. I am going to be sure to put it in my rotation of breakfast dishes to make and take. I like the different texture and the taste!

I tried this and it was a disaster. I cooked it on low for 8 hours and my whole house smelled like burnt eggs and cheese. It was burnt and stuck to the sides. Idk what I did wrong except I did about half the called for ingredients cause its just me and a child in my home. Maybe next time but honestly I am kinda scared to try again. The smell actually made me ill feeling.

If I use bacon as my meat, should I cook it ahead of time or put it in raw? I’m hoping it can be cooked ahead so I can get rid of the grease!

Thanks!

Cook for seven hours? Everyone would be starved by then. What a crock!

Sounds delicious! Can I use anything else instead of frozen hash browns? Also, does it have to be 2% milk? Can I use full fat non homogenized milk? Or are there any other good alternatives to milk? And last question, I don’t have to use the onion and bell pepper right? I can use my preferred choice of vegetables?

Instead of hash browns,can I use regular potatoes,diced, and par boil them,before I put them in the crock pot(as for some reason my crock doesn’t cook potatoes all the way done)? Then put the rest of ingredients in,and cook as directed?

Hi..I’m planning on making this for my hubby (he has to leave for work by 4:30am) & I was wondering if I could use fresh hashbrowns? If yes does it affect the time? Thx!

This sounds great! We would probably have some leftovers, do they heat up okay? My thought is that I would let it cool off, put it in the fridge, and either microwave it or use it as a filling for breakfast burrito’s the next day.

Sounds good! Any way the recipes can have the recommended crockpot size included in them? Thanks.

To make this vegetarian, could you replace the meat with dried beans? Would they soften enough overnight? New to crocking! 🙂

Made this for the first time last night for an easy post-Thanksgiving breakfast. Came out pretty good. Used 10 eggs and eye-balled the amounts of the other ingredients and fed 7 adults (with seconds) and 2 children. Only “mistake” was using too many items with a lot of water in them. Had to use paper towels to absorb a lot of liquid. Still turned out tasty.
