Crock Pot Breakfast


  • 1 bag 26 oz. frozen hash browns
    • Since Tim doesn’t eat white potatoes, I peeled and shredded about 8 red potatoes, but I’ll be the first to tell you it’s not as tasty.
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1 16 oz. roll sausage
    • I’ve used the maple sausage, and I really liked. This time I just used regular.
  • Salt and pepper
  • 16 oz. bag shredded cheddar cheese
Spray crock pot and evenly spread hash browns at the bottom.
Crack 12 eggs in a large bowl.
Mix well (and slowly) using a whisk.
Add the milk.
Go ahead and sprinkle in the ground mustard. This might sound like a weird ingredient, but I’ve come to love (and use) this in most of my recipes.
Add plenty of salt….
…and lots of fresh pepper. Mix well and set aside.

Cook the sausage on high heat, drain and set aside.

Add sausage on top of hash browns.
Is this enough cheese? Maybe? Probably. Throw the whole big bag in there.
Mix it up well. Or good, depending on where you’re from.
Pour the egg mixture over everything in the crock pot. Using a wood spoon, even everything out so it’s spread evenly.

Turn the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours. If you sleep more than that and lack the discipline to get up just to turn off the crock pot (like myself), feel free to make this the day before and keep it on warm all night. That works really well in our house. Now go wash your face, watch some E!, and get in bed. Go ahead and close your eyes, and fall asleep. Because when you wake up and walk into the kitchen, you’ll see this…
