Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole


I have seen a few of these Crock Pot breakfast casseroles, but have never made one.  I decided to give this one a try for our New Year’s Day breakfast.  How nice would that be to throw everything in the crock pot the night before, and wake up to a warm breakfast, without all the work?!  And even when making it, the hardest part was shredding the cheese and browning the meat.  I guess a drawback of it though, was that the smell of it cooking woke me up about 3 am, after having already gone to bed late, but it smelt good, and was ready when we were ready to eat.  I would say though, be sure to use plenty of salt and pepper, and I would probably do about 15 oz. of potatoes and a can of diced green chilies next time, it needed a bit more flavor.

Serves 8 for about $1.00/serving
