Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

Company coming?  I just love waking up to a warm breakfast that’s all ready in my slow cooker, guests or not.  I have to be honest though, Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole may wake you up early it smells so heavenly good!


It’s super easy to prepare, and you can easily mix it up, change out the shredded potatoes for quinoa, or chunked potatoes.  I used mild Italian sausage, but you could use ham, bacon, or whatever!

I am a big fan of breakfast casseroles.  They are nice for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  I especially like to set it late at night, let it cook for 8 hours, and have breakfast ready for guests when they are ready to have it. All you do is prep everything and then layer, layer, and set it and forget it.  Be sure to use a 6 quart slow cooker, I love this one with the locking handles for transporting.


Spray the crock with non-stick cooking spray.  Layer half the potatoes, then add the sausage, cheeses, onions, and peppers.  Then do it one more time, yes a second layer.  Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl and pour it evenly over the potatoes, sausage, and veggies.  Cook on low setting for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.

I like to serve my slow cooker breakfast casserole with fruit, salsa, avocado, olives, and tomatoes.
