Everybody’s busy. Throw in some animals that have to be fed every. single. morning. and things can get really crazy, really fast. Crockpot breakfast casserole is an easy way to make sure you squeeze in time for breakfast on busy mornings. And it uses up extra eggs too!
I have a bad habit of skipping breakfast when things get too hectic. And being hungry is no fun! Having pre-made food all set and ready to go can be super useful in those types of scenarios, such as this crockpot breakfast casserole.
You can adapt this however you need to. It’s super flexible based on what you have on hand or what you like. You can make it heavy on veggies or heavy on meat. Cheese or no cheese. Low carb or potatoes! Use what’s in your fridge or garden and pre-make your own breakfast.
The nice thing about super flexible recipes like this is that you can adapt them easily to what is on sale. When broccoli was on sale, I put a bunch of it in the freezer. Now it’s available for things like this. You can do the same thing with other vegetables too.
Another thing I like to do is stock up on ham after Christmas and Easter when they are cheaper and then it’s super easy to pull a ham out of the freezer for dinner one night, then use the leftover meat for meals throughout the week.
Crockpot Breakfast Casserole Is Super Easy To Make
You do not need a recipe for making your own breakfast casserole. It’s super duper easy. Here’s how to do it!
- Get yourself a crock pot and plug it in.
- Put a layer of either meat or hearty veggies on the bottom. This can be sausage, ground beef, broccoli, ham, whatever. (This layer should be something that can handle a long cook time or high heat without turning to mush.)
- Crack open a dozen eggs, mix them up with some cream or milk and dump them in.
- Throw some cheese on top
- Put on the lid, turn it on, and walk away.
Wohoo! You’re done! All you need to do is show up the next morning and chow down.
Regarding cooking times, use the low setting to cook overnight. On high, this will take about four hours.
