Breakfast Casserole in the Crock Pot

Total Time
6hrs 30mins
Prep 30 mins
Cook 6 hrs

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray crock pot and evenly spread hash browns at the bottom.
  2. Crack 12 eggs in a large bowl.
  3. Mix well (and slowly) using a whisk.
  4. Add the milk.
  5. 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.
  6. Add plenty of salt -- and lots of fresh pepper. Mix well and set aside.
  7. Cook the sausage on high heat, drain and set aside.
  8. Add sausage on top of hash browns.
  9. Is this enough cheese? Maybe? Probably. Throw the whole big bag in there.
  10. Mix it up well. Or good, depending on where you're from.
  11. Pour the egg mixture over everything in the crock pot. Using a wood spoon, even everything out so it's spread evenly.
  12. Turn the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours.

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!

This is very bland when made as directed. I would decrease the dried mustard and amp up the flavor with sauteed vegetables - peppers, onions, spinach with liquid squeezed out, and add a tsp or 2 of dried basil. Also agree that this was done much sooner than indicated - overnight is too long for this to cook.

I was not impressed. The result was significantly overcooked. I used a 7.5 qt. Crock Pot brand slow cooker and cooked for 7 hours. With less time or a smaller appliance, it might have been better. Also, the directins were unclear and there were ingredients listed that were not even mentioned in the directions. I have since located the original version of this recipe at All Kinds of Yumm blog with pictures for each step, which clarifies the process a bit. Will not make again.
