Recipe by Chef Emanuela
Cooks while you sleep! Sounds perfect for a Sunday morning or holidays and great for company! Some fun variations of this recipe. Before cooking (during prep) you can add: chunks of sourdough bread, diced chilies, salsa, diced green onions. Serve hot with a glass of orange juice and a side of toast.

Very good recipe! Next time I will add lots of green chiles and mix it with pepper jack cheese! Add some bacon too-just because!!! Serve it with tortilla's and fresh grapes( in season right now)!!! Perfect! Stress free breakfast. If you use a small crock pot plan 8 hours and for a larger crock pot 6 hours is perfect!
- 1 (26 ounce) bag frozen hash browns
- 12 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon ground mustard
- 16 ounces sausage (maple, sage or regular sausage.)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 16 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 garlic cloves (minced)
- 1 large onion (sliced)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
Directions See How It's Made
- Spray crock pot and evenly spread hash browns at the bottom.
- Crack 12 eggs in a large bowl.
- Mix well (and slowly) using a whisk.
- Add the milk.
- 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.
- Add plenty of salt, the nutmeg and lots of fresh pepper. Mix well and set aside.
- Cook the sausage on high heat, drain and set aside. Using the leftover fat from the sausage, sauté the garlic and onions until translucent.
- Add sausage, onions and garlic on top of hash browns.
- Is this enough cheese? Maybe? Probably. Throw the whole big bag in there.
- Mix it up well. Or good, depending on where you're from.
- Pour the egg mixture over everything in the crock pot. Using a wood spoon, even everything out so it's spread evenly.
- Turn the crock pot on low for 5-7 hours. Crockpots vary so yours may need more or less time.
