Crock Pot Breakfast

Sound pretty awesome doesn’t it? You can either make this crock pot breakfast the night before or make it and cook it the day of. Whatever you choose everyone is going to be sure to love it!
I kind of have a thing about breakfasts made in your slow cooker like Turkey Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole, Crock Pot Caramel Apple Rolls, and Crock Pot Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal. I love that they cook overnight or while I’m doing other things around the house. Plus, they are perfect for cooking while you are at church or an activity, then you come home to a wonderful homemade breakfast recipe!
A must for me in breakfast casserole is a base of hash browns. Some breakfast casseroles have a base of bread and that’s just not my thing. I love hash browns in my breakfast casserole.
Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole
Add in cheese, eggs and ham plus the fact it cooks in a slow cooker and it becomes the best breakfast casserole out there!
My family is big on breakfast. In fact I serve it a lot for dinner and referring to it as a “brinner” recipe. I’m not sure why my kids think it’s so exciting to get breakfast for dinner but they do. I like the fact that it provides a few new recipes to rotate on our weekly meal plan.
Another great thing about serving breakfast for dinner is the fact that sometimes my husband makes it. He’s really the “breakfast” guy around here. My kids know this and they always go to Daddy when they want a homemade breakfast. I’m also totally ok with giving up the reigns for a meal.
This casserole would make a great meal for “brinner” because you can turn it on and let it cook while you run around to activities with the kids during the after school hours.
Breakfast Casserole with Ham
I’m always making Crock Pot recipes for this reason alone! They are so handy when busy nights are here. Sometimes I forget that breakfast casseroles don’t always have to be for special occasions like Easter, Mother’s Day, Christmas etc.
Speaking of Mother’s Day that is totally going to be here before we know it isn’t it?
My girls love to bring me breakfast in bed, but this year I’m going to be at a conference and don’t get back in until the afternoon on Mother’s Day. I haven’t had the heart to tell them that yet. #momfail right there!
