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.

could I use the dehy­drat­ed hash­browns instead of frozen?? I would like to try this recipe!

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??

Thanks so much for the great recipe! I can­not wait to try it. Quick ques­tion, is there a way to use dehy­drat­ed hash browns instead of frozen ones? Thanks again!

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!

Can I add 12 eggs and leave the recipe of every­thing else the same and it still come out ok??

Lexi

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!

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.
