Looking for a high-protein breakfast? Try this Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole full of cheesy potatoes, eggs, ham and peppers. Let it cook overnight!
Although I’ve used a slow cooker for years, I had never made an overnight breakfast casserole in it. I’m not sure why I hadn’t. I mean, waking up to the aroma of ham & eggs is like a dream.
I know the importance of eating a healthy breakfast, but all too often I choose to grab a granola bar or a bowl of cereal…and some days when I’m trying to get my mile-long list done, I don’t even get around to eating breakfast. All of the “eat a good breakfast” advice I give to my kids goes out the window.
This cheesy slow cooker breakfast casserole saves the morning, though! Throw it in your slow cooker later in the evening, set your slow cooker to low and cook it for about 6-8 hours. You’ll wake up to a delicious breakfast filled with protein. And the leftovers taste just as delicious the next day!
Feel free to adapt this recipe using sausage, bacon and the type of veggies that you like best.
One hint….I like to use slow cooker liners for this specific recipe. It makes morning clean-up a breeze!
I originally shared this recipe over on OhioEggs.com.
I am going to my nieces wedding out of town and I am going to prepare all the ingredients before I leave home, I am actually making 2 of this recipe, one as stated and for the guys who won’t eat onions and bell peppers I am going to make a 3 meat combo (ham, bacon and sausage). I will let you all know how it turns out but I think it’s going to be delicious. There are 36 of us attending the pre wedding brunch so I’m thinking 2 should be plenty for everyone to enjoy. Thanks so much… Read more »
Butttt what if u sleep longer than six hours. And do I put the slow cooker on high or low.
Hi, can this recipe be cut in half without compromising any of the outcomes or the flavor?
Thank you very much,
Would it work to cut the recipe in 1/2 for less people? What would the time adjustment be? Thank you!
