Easy Delicious Slow Cooked Breakfast

As promised I have the recipe for that slow cooker breakfast I made on Saturday morning.  I mentioned before that I wanted to have something warm for the runners after a chilly training session.  I did a little research and combined a few recipes to come up with this simple and seriously delicious crustless quiche.  Although it isn’t super healthy, it also isn’t terrible and you can revamp it any way you want to make it fit your dietary needs.

I found one small remaining piece to take a picture of. Not the best, but better than nothing!

What I loved most about this recipe was how easy it was to prep.  All you need to do is cook up the bacon and you are good to go.  This dish is a perfect balance of breakfast favorites.  I would do this as a brunch or Christmas morning treat.  I love that you can put it together the night before and turn it on before you go to bed.  In the morning you have breakfast ready to go.  I served this with my Blueberry Buckle, a perfect combination.

Ingredients:

1 package hash browns (from freezer, uncooked)

8-12 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

1 onion, chopped

1 pound bacon cooked and crumbled (we like ours extra crispy)

12 eggs

1 cup skim milk

Salt to taste

Garlic salt to taste

Directions:

Cook bacon and crumble.  Chop onion to preferred size.  Spray inside of slow cooker.  Layer half the hash browns, half the onion, half the bacon, and half the cheese.  Sprinkle with a little salt and garlic salt.  Layer the remaining ingredients.  Combine the eggs and milk whisk thoroughly.  Pour eggs and milk over the layered ingredients.  Cover slow cooker and set on low for 8 hours.  Turn to warm until ready to eat.  I waited and kept this in the fridge until right before I went to bed and then turned it on so that it didn’t overcook.

Note:  When we woke up it looked a tad watery on top so I adjusted the lid to allow steam to escape for 10-15 minutes.  I put the lid back on and it was perfect when we were ready to eat.  Nobody wants watery eggs!

  1. I would eat that all day every day as long as I kept the bacon out. I know. I’m a weirdo. 🙂
    You are too sweet for wanting make sure the runners have a warm, hearty breakfast!

    • Rock and I were discussing last night what would be good instead of bacon. I would even try chorizo. I’m not a breakfast sausage kind of person. Maybe add in peppers?! The options are endless….and I am sweet to make them breakfast but I totally admit that I was also thinking about filling my own belly too 😉
