Recipe: Overnight Crock-Pot Breakfast Casserole
A comforting slow cooker casserole that’s also totally Instagrammable? Sign us up. This hearty breakfast bake, which is packed with vibrant veggies, cooks while you’re asleep — meaning you’ll wake up to a warm, fully-cooked breakfast. It’s one of my favorite solutions for hurried weekdays, when making another egg dish, such as an omelet or a frittata, simply isn’t realistic.
This Crock-Pot Breakfast Casserole Is Endlessly Customizable
This is my favorite slow cooker casserole, with a variety of veggies and cubes of thick-cut deli ham scattered throughout. I like ham because it pairs well with eggs and doesn’t require any upfront cooking, but if you prefer bacon or sausage, you can swap those in instead — you’ll just need to cook them on the stovetop first before crumbling them into the filling. Looking to keep your egg casserole meat-free? Simply omit the ham all together and proceed with the recipe as directed.
Serve this casserole on weekday breakfasts, as breakfast for dinner, or as an easy weekend brunch.
