Crockpot Breakfast Casserole
Made The Night Before
I have two teenagers in high school and they say that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. Sometimes I feel like this is one of the hardest meals because my kids literally get up so early that they are always rushing around. It's really one of the busiest times of the day. So I started getting creative with semi homemade meals.
This Crockpot Breakfast Casserole can be made the night before and is done first thing in the morning. So even if they get up before me they can simply lift off the lid and scoop it out themselves and mom gets an extra hour of sleep!
I love this recipe because it's so versatile. You can use different cheeses depending on your taste and you could do sausage, bacon, smoked sausage or whatever meat you like. If your kids are veggie eaters try adding bell pepper, mushrooms and or onions.
Unlike most breakfast casseroles, this one can be completely made the night before! It works best using Crockpot Liners, in case the edges get crispy. If your Crockpot runs very hot or is an older model, you might consider trialing this recipe out during the day first.
