Kitchen Diaries: Slow Cooked Breakfast Casserole

I have another slow-cooker recipe for you guys this week: Breakfast casseroles!

I had never made this recipe before but as it involves few ingredients (eggs, bacon, hash browns, cheese, etc), I figured I really couldn't go wrong. 
I was right - these turned out to be delicious and I've been having them for breakfast almost every weekend!

Ingredients:
(serves 4)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk (I used almond milk but you can use whatever you have around)
  • 1 lb of hash brown potatoes 
  • 1/2 lbs of chopped bacon
  • 1/2 cup of diced onions
  • 1 1/2 cup of shredded cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon of mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of pepper (plus more to taste)
Directions:
1. Beat the eggs in a large bowl until well mixed
2. Add the milk, garlic powder, mustard, salt and pepper. Put this aside for now. 
3. Create a layer of hash brown potatoes at the bottom of the slow-cooker and add 1/3 of the onions and 1/3 of the bacon
4. Add a layer of cheese
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you're out of ingredients
6. Pour the egg mixture over the layers
7. Cook on high for 4 hours

Bon apetit!

  2. Oh yum this sounds great! :)

    I've made dinners and lunches in the slow cooker before but never thought about breakfasts!

  3. This sounds amazing! I'm so hungry right now so I felt like drooling looking through the pictures, haha. I just can't imagine cooking my breakfast for four hours. Do you make this in the evening and then serve it the next morning or do you wake up super early ;) ;)

    Much Love!

    1. I actually do wake up early (I'm a morning person and I wake up at around 6:30 am on weekends too). This is usually a weekend breakfast for me though so I get up, dump the ingredients in the slow-cooker, then go excercise and take care of other things and by the time I'm done, it's ready for me.
      I've also made this late at night and cooked it for 8 hours on low which also does the job (and would be ready for you as soon as you wake up).
