Easter Morning Crockpot Breakfast

With the arrival of spring, that means Easter is around the corner. For most people, this day is filled with Egg hunts, church, or lots of food! Starting off with a healthy, nutrient dense, and well-balanced breakfast will help keep you and your family full. Also, this helps keep blood sugar levels even, if Easter Baskets are raided.

 

 

Slow Cooker Egg Casserole Breakfast

For Egg Mixture
  1. 6 - 8 eggs, depending size
  2. ½ cup of milk (plant or animal based)
  3. Salt and Pepper to taste
For Layers
  1. Animal or plant proteins (I used uncured and nitrate-free ham)
  2. Raw Sweet potatoes, shredded (approx. 1- 2 cups)
  3. Mix of other veggies
  4. Cheese
  5. *Some measurements may need to be adjusted depending on the size of the crockpot. Mine was 3 quart.
Instructions
  1. Grease crockpot liberally, to minimize food sticking to the sides.
  2. Layer the meat, veggies, and cheese. Much like when you make lasagna. Or you can just throw everything in the crockpot and mix it all up.
  3. Be generous with the cheese. I added cheese sparely and I felt like it was missing something.
  4. Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the ingredients in the crockpot. Top with cheese.
  5. Cover and cook on low for approx. 6 hours. As my casserole cooked some water gathered at the bottom of the crockpot. I think it was from the veggies and it didn’t affect the taste.
  6. Cut out of the crockpot and serve warm.
