I'm a big fan of my crock pot because it makes my life so much easier! I usually use my crock pot for dinner recipes, but I really love this breakfast crock pot recipe. This recipe can be prepared the night before and by morning you have a great hearty breakfast ready to go! It takes no more than 30 minutes prep time. This is a great recipe for families on the go! Don't have time to make breakfast for your children before school? Put this together the night before so that you don't have to worry about them going to school hungry!

Ingredients

  • 1 Bag (32 oz.) Frozen Hash Browns
  • 1 Pound Cooked Bacon (or Ham), Diced (or Cubed)
  • Medium Onion, Diced
  • Medium Green or Red Bellpepper, Diced
  • 1 1/2 Cups Shredded Cheddar
  • 1 Dozen Eggs
  • 1 Cup Milk

Directions

  1. Start by adding a layer of hash browns to the bottom of the crock pot. Next, add a layer of bacon and onions, followed by a layer of peppers and cheese. Repeat this process until you have 2-3 layers. Top with a layer of cheese.
  2. Beat the eggs and milk together. Pour over the casserole. Cover and cook for 10-12 hours on low setting.

You can add seasonings as desired to suit your taste. Salsa is also a fun way to spruce up this recipe!

For a healthier version try this...

I'm all about being healthy, so whenever I come across a recipe that I love I always consider ways that I can make it healthier for myself and my family. For a healthier take on this crockpot breakfast casserole try using egg whites and leaving out the bacon (or ham). Try adding in more veggies like mushrooms or spinach for a crockpot veggie casserole without the added calories of the bacon. You can also opt to use another type of shredded cheese that is lower in fat and calories. I've tried using swiss and it worked great!

      You can repeat the hash brown layer if you'd like, but I usually just add the bag to the bottom and then layer the rest of the ingredients a few times.

      This recipe can easily serve up to 8 people (sometimes more). For larger groups just double the recipe. Enjoy!

      I usually use bacon in this recipe because my husband is a bacon fanatic, but sausage sounds like a great idea too! My favorite part about this recipe is that you don't have to wake up and cook a full breakfast. I've never been a morning person, so this recipe makes my life a bit easier! :-)

      i tried something like this one time, while it wasn't horrible the family didn't care much for it. Mostly the texture I think. I want to try it again but using diced frozen hashbrown (potatoes o'brian, I think they called) instead of the shredded kind. I used cut up sausage links too instead of bacon. I am glad you posted it. It was really simple to put together and great to wake up with breakfast already made : )
