You may have made breakfast casserole in a slow cooker before but I love this recipe more than most because I’ve incorporated fresh potatoes rather than hash browns from the freezer. As the saying goes “the fresher the better” and you will be pleasantly surprised how the texture and density of the fresh potatoes makes this breakfast casserole hearty and delicious. See a video of me Crocking up this delicious breakfast casserole HERE!
- Layer ingredients in the slow cooker, starting with the klondike potatoes
- Place browned sausage on top of potatoes
- Layer peppers, onion, and cheese in that order.
- Whisk eggs and milk together and pour over layers in slow cooker. Make sure everything gets nice and moist from the egg mixture.
- Sprinkle with Johnny’s Seasoning Salt (or your favorite seasoning salt)- I use about 1-2 teaspoons.
- Cover and Crock on LOW for 7 hours.
- Wake up to a delicious breakfast casserole! I like to serve with fresh fruit. (and leftovers make a great snack or even dinner.)

Did you leave your potatoes whole, or do you cut them up? I have never heard of Klondike potatoes so I am curious.
Hi Laura I did cut them up. This recipe is so good! 🙂 Klondike potatoes can be found in most grocery stores. They are not in all areas but they are absolutely delicious. You can google them, and find out if they are in your area. Happy Crocking!
Thank You! I have been looking for a crock pot breakfast recipe using fresh potatoes! I can’t wait to make this!
Was just wondering if this recipe is freezable after baking. Am cooking for one but this sounds like a great make-ahead breakfast.
Hi! Do you skin the potatoes or leave the skin on them? And about how many potatoes do you use? Is it a pound? Thanks! Can’t wait to try this for
Hello Pam! As far as the potatoes go, you can leave the skin off or peel them, it is all a matter of preference. The recipe calls for 16 oz. which is 2 cups, so you should use 2 cups of potatoes of your choice. so so YUMMY!
I made this casserole last night, exactly as directed in the recipe. After 7 hrs. it was burned to a crisp on the bottom & outer edges as well as so dry it was inedible. Sure hated to waste all of those ingredients but it was horrible and had to be tossed in the garbage. 7 hrs. is waaay too long for this recipe. My crockpot is a few years old and doesn’t cook at an excessive temperature.
I’m so sorry that happened, Lana! What size of slow cooker did you use?
