Cody is quite the cook and this is an easy bachelor item he makes for all of us on get-togethers!
- 1⁄2 lb sausage or 1⁄2 lb ham
- 1⁄2 lb bacon
- 1 (32 ounce) bag frozen hash brown potatoes
- 1 -2 bell pepper, chopped
- 1⁄2 onion, chopped
- 3 -4 cups cheese, shredded
- 12 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- salt, to taste
- pepper, to taste
- Brown the sausage and bacon.
- In crock pot, layer the items until you have run out.
- Be sure that the first layer is a meat.
- Mix together the eggs and milk (salt and pepper to taste) and pour over the top.
- Cook on low for approximately 8 hours.
Very tasty, though 8 hours in my new, 6qt crockpot almost burnt it -- the edges were a bit crisper than was desirable. Next time I'll try adding a lb of frozen broccoli florets because we like broccoli in our eggs and because I think that will slow my overenthusiastic crockpot down a touch. I left out the peppers because we don't like them much and added extra onions because we do like those. Next time I think I'll add some herbs -- I like thyme with eggs, or Italian seasoning. It was great to have a hot, cooked breakfast without having to cook before I've eaten breakfast. :D
Excellent! I did substitute serrano peppers from my garden for the green chilies (what I had on hand) and my family and guests raved! Switched the crock pot to "keep warm" from low after about 6 1/2 hours, and it kept very nicely for late risers. I do recommend using a liner (oven bag works just as well) as any recipe similar to this will make clean-up a chore. Keeping the leftovers to construct breakfast burritos tomorrow. Thank you, thank you, Hill Family for sharing this recipe!
Didn't follow the recipe exactly, using only crumbled cooked sausage, eggs with milk, shredded cheese, hash brown potatoes and another layer of shredded cheese. This does require the high setting on the crock pot, which was a huge surprise to me. This saved the day at work as I had no time to leave during a ten hour day. Thank you for posting!
