Easy Breakfast

  My family has gotten spoiled in regards to having more than just cold cereal on the weekends.  But sometimes I just don’t feel like doing a big “to-do” early in the morning.  Crockpot to the rescue!!  I prepare this the night before so when my early birds get up, I can just serve them with no extra work. This recipe can be changed to your family’s liking or to the ingredients you have on hand.  I have made this with ham as well as deer sausage…use what you want!  Also you can use frozen hash browns…just use a 28 oz package.  My family likes this best as breakfast burritos, so the servings size increase.

Crockpot Breakfast

Temp: Low  Cook Time: 9-10 hours  8 servings
  • 3 ½ c hash browns
  • ½  c diced onion
  • ¾ to 1 lb spicy Italian sausage
  • 2 c shredded cheddar cheese (or colby jack)
  • 1 c milk
  • 1 dozen eggs (I use half whole eggs & half egg whites)
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 t pepper


  • Spray crockpot with non-stick cooking spray.
  • You will make three layers. Place 1/3 of the potatoes into the bottom of the crockpot, followed by 1/3 of the onions, 1/3 of the sausage and 1/3 of the cheese.
  • Repeat this step two more times ending with the layer of cheese.
  • Beat together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper; pour it over the layers in the crockpot.
  • Cover and cook on low for 9-10 hours overnight.
  • When ready to serve, can eat as is or put into flour tortillas for a great breakfast burrito.
