Slow Cooker Overnight Breakfast Casserole

What a fantastic way to wake up – to the sweet, scrumptious smell of breakfast already ready for you. There’s nothing more fantastic to walking into a kitchen with breakfast already prepared, ready to serve, piping hot, and eager to be devoured. It makes me Carlton Dance kind-of happy.

What if I told you that it required little more than a couple extra minutes in your evening?

This breakfast is a quick fixer-upper that's super easy and super delicious to wake up using minimal effort
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 10
  • 10 eggs, whisked
  • ¼ cup milk, whisked with the eggs
  • 1 package pork breakfast sausage roll, uncooked (can use a package of uncooked bacon, too)
  • ½ bag shredded hash browns, frozen
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • seasoning to taste (salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Mrs. Dash Table Blend, etc.)
  1. Before you go to bed the night before you want to serve, spray cooking spray into your crock pot in the bottom and all along the edges.
  2. Place your sausage first, breaking it into small pieces.
  3. Lay shredded hash browns over top, sprinkling evenly over the sausage.
  4. Season the hash browns/sausage mixture before adding the eggs
  5. Pour whisked eggs over top the potatoes and sausage, ensuring everything is covered in egg.
  6. Season a little again on top and cover to cook on "low" overnight.
  7. (TIP: Don't forget to ensure your crock pot will not shut off after a certain time without staying warm some how)
  8. Moments before serving, sprinkle shredded cheese over top to melt.

You definitely want to make this just before you go to bed. You don’t want to sit there, watching TV, and smelling this deliciousness. Trust me. We learned that the hard way on Christmas Eve; this was cooking in our crock pot for an easy Christmas morning breakfast (that went over like GANGBUSTERS) and we were STARVING smelling this while wrapping presents. GAH!

This helped make our first day back to school this morning run SO much smoother for us. 6:30am was not kind to us, but it was definitely helpful to have breakfast already ready.

What do you think? Is this something that would go over HUGE in your family, too?
