I am a huge fan of my crock-pot and breakfast foods, I try to use it 3-4 times a week for easy, stress free meals.
I tried out these recipes at my cabin up in north in Minnesota, there is no air conditioning at the cabin so we try to not use the oven. I love egg bakes so I figured why not try a new egg crock-pot meal.
I also use crock-pot bags so the clean-up is easy as well (no dishwasher at the cabin either). Both recipes are a dump in and cook on low. I started the breakfast casserole at midnight so it would be ready for breakfast.
I dumped in: cooked sausage, a bag of cheddar cheese, 1 bag of hash browns, diced peppers and onions, 1 cup of milk, 18 eggs, salt and pepper. Mix everything together and cook on low for 7-8 hours. You can really add whatever you want… mustard for more flavor, cooked bacon, I have even used leftover brisket and ribs for the meat or you can even go a vegetarian route and add more veggies .
Everyone loved it, I also put the casserole in tortillas to make breakfast burritos, just top with more cheese, sour cream and hot sauce. It made enough for 8 adults and 4 children with leftovers for the next day.
I know my crock-pot has seen better days, What can I say? I use it a lot.
For dessert I made a crock-pot Cinnamon roll Casserole, It consisted of 2 cans of cinnamon rolls, 4 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk, 3 Tbsp maple syrup and 2 tsp vanilla. I cut up the cinnamon rolls into quarters and put one can on the bottom of the crock-pot then mixed together the eggs, milk, syrup and vanilla and added over the cinnamon rolls, cut up the other can of cinnamon rolls and layered on top. Drizzle on icing package and cook on low 2-2.5 hour. When its done drizzle to other icing package on and serve.
6 of us ate all the cinnamon roll casserole and didn’t leave any for the kids, they were not happy since the whole cabin smelt so delicious.
