Crock Pot Morning Casserole

I have a crockpot that gets hot on high, too. But, the following recipe seems to work well on low overnight (I don’t start it before 9:30 p.m.)  I just make sure not to sleep in the next morning.  ;0)

Crock Pot Morning Casserole

1 bag (32 oz.) frozen hash brown potatoes

1 lb. of bacon diced, cooked and drained or 1 lb. cooked ham, cubed (I use turkey bacon/sausage.)

1 medium diced onion

1 green bell pepper diced

1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar or Monterrey Jack cheese

1 dozen eggs

1 cup milk

1 t. salt & 1 t. pepper (more or less to taste)

Place a layer of frozen potatoes on the bottom of the slow cooker, followed by a layer of bacon then onions, green pepper and cheese.  Repeat the layering process two or three more times, ending with a layer of cheese. Beat the eggs, milk and salt and pepper together.  Pour over the crockpot mixture, cover and turn on low.  Cook for 10-12 hours.  (I don’t cook it this long to avoid scorching.)

I found this and other breakfast crockpot recipes at http://www.thatsmyhome.com way back in ’09.  I assume the site is still there.  If it is, you’ll find lots of other easy crockpot recipes.
