decent, but a bit bland.
This one worked out great for us on our annual Florida vacation. I cooked the bacon, but I had overcooked it slightly, so I did not want to cook it with the mixture overnight. We just added it to the top for the last 1/2 hour just to let it heat up. Mine was a little dry, but my crock pot cooks fast, so I would recommend watching it so it does not overcook. Some also ate with salsa on top and that was good too. I will be making this again for Thanksgiving brunch.....Also, I find it hard to season with salt & pepper for a large group, so everyone added their own.
My family thought this was a bit bland. It may have been that I used a sweet onion. I would definitely add something else, perhaps the chilies. I will try the leftovers as a filling for breakfast burritos, with salsa!! Oh,yesss!! I just reheated some, topped it with green salsa and some sour cream!!!
I have made this recipe for almost as long as it has been posted here and just realized I have never reviewed it. Potatoes, cheese, & bacon -- can that combo ever go wrong -- make exactly as the recipe is posted -- you will not be disappointed -- however, the aroma of this cooking overnight makes me crazy hungry and tempted to get up before the birds start singing. Thanks for posting.
I cooked this up last night and made some make ahead breakfast sandwiches and burritos with it. We cooked it for 8 hours on low and it was only lightly browned on the outside. This turned out great and was easy to put together and freeze. Thank you for an easy way to do my OAMC breakfasts!
I've used this recipe a few times now in the past year. It came out beautiful everytime! Was a great time saver for guests on Christmas morning. Just wake up...and it's done! Gives you more time to spend with your morning guests. Will continue to use this recipe and enjoy it.
Set this recipe on WARM...otherwise it will be done in 5 hours on low setting. Big hit at church breakfast. So easy to fix the bight before. Just grab and go in the morning!
This was well received by the people I made it for. I used 18 eggs, a 30 oz bag of hashbrowns, 1 lb diced ham, omitted the dry mustard, and added a 4 oz can of diced green chilies. I layered as specified putting the chilies between the two layers. I cooked it on low in my 6 qt crock pot for 8 hours. The very edges were brown at this point and the cheese on top was melted. I unfortunately had to leave the crock pot on warm for another hour which resulted in some burnt on egg, but that was my fault.
I made this for a work breakfast - super easy. I substituted ground sausage for bacon. On top of each potato layer, I sprinkled garlic salt and then added a can of rotel tomatoes for some kick. It was delicious.
