Breakfast casserole in the crock pot!

Wouldn't this be great on a cold, Saturday or Sunday morning? Or how about those family holidays where everyone is together and you need lots of food for breakfast and everyone wants to eat at the same time? What about Mother's Day "breakfast in bed"....or on a school day, when mornings are rushed and kids don't seem to have time for a healthy breakfast. This is a great meal; you wake up and breakfast is served!

Breakfast casserole in the crock pot!
While you sleep, your breakfast is cooking.
Wake up, breakfast is served!

1 bag 26 oz. frozen hash browns, or larger
12 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon ground mustard
1 16 oz. roll sausage - maple, sage or regular sausage.
Salt and pepper
16 oz. bag shredded cheddar cheese
(optional variations listed below)

1. Spray crock pot and evenly spread hash browns at the bottom.
2. Crack 12 eggs in a large bowl.
3. Mix well (and slowly) using a whisk.
4. Add the milk.
5. Go ahead and sprinkle in the ground mustard. This might sound like a weird ingredient, but I've come to love (and use) this in most of my recipes.
6. Add plenty of salt and lots of fresh pepper. Mix well and set aside.
7. Cook the sausage on high heat, drain and set aside.
8. Add sausage on top of hash browns.
9. Is this enough cheese? Maybe? Probably. Throw the whole big bag in there.
10. Mix it up well. Or good, depending on where you're from.
11. Pour the egg mixture over everything in the crock pot. Using a wood spoon, even everything out so it's spread evenly.
12. Turn the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours.

Some fun variations of this recipe. Before cooking (during prep) you can add:

  • chunks of sourdough bread
  • diced chilies
  • salsa
  • diced green onions
  • crumpled or chopped bacon
  • diced ham or Canadian bacon

"When I found this recipe I was so amazed and excited at the same time.  Why hadn't I ever thought of this before???" as quoted straight from Amy Ott on HER PAGE! This is NOT Amy's original recipe.
