(PCM) No time to make breakfast in the morning? No problem – make it the night before!
Crockpots just may be the secret to getting by in life. Forget trying to whip up a nutritious hot breakfast or even trying to get everyone at the breakfast table at the same time – it just doesn’t work on hectic weekday mornings. Instead, take care of it the night before: simply put all your favorite breakfast ingredients in the crock pot before you go to bed, and wake up to a delicious, perfectly cooked breakfast that everyone can dig into on their own morning schedules.
Crockpot recipes are all over the internet, from food blogs to Pinterest to cooking sites. You can search for breakfast crock pot recipes to get a base recipe to go from, and you’ll be throwing in all your family’s favorites in no time.
Here’s a simple egg casserole recipe to get you started (you can swap eggs for hashbrowns, use different cheeses or egg substitutes, try bacon or taylor ham instead of sausage, add sauteed vegetables, etc.):
Sausage And Egg Casserole from CDKitchen.com
12 beaten eggs
14 slices bread
2 1/4 cups milk
2 1/2 cups grated cheddar or monterey jack cheese
1 pound sausage, cooked and drained
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Spray the sides of crockpot. Cut bread into large squares. Make layers in the crockpot of bread, followed by sausage, followed by cheese, ending with a cheese layer.
Beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together. Pour over crockpot mixture, cover and cook on low for 8-12 hours.
