Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole

Oh man, I forgot to get a picture of this breakfast casserole outside the Crock Pot. I'll try to remember to update this post with a better picture as soon as I make it again. This is a great 8 hour slowcooker breakfast recipe, which means you can make it before you go to bed and it will be ready when you wake up. Perfect for Christmas morning or Easter, etc. I made it as a breakfast for dinner meal and it worked great - I just put it in at 9am and it was ready at 5pm. It tastes like a potato quiche and is tasty and economical. I served it with some muffins and canned pears - easy peasy.

Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole

28 oz bag frozen O'Brien potatoes
1/2 lb cubed ham
2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar, divided
12 eggs
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper

Spray the inside of slowcooker with cooking spray. In a large bowl combine frozen potatoes, ham, and 2 cups cheese; pour into the slow cooker. Whisk together eggs, milk, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour egg mixture evenly over the potato mixture in the slowcooker. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours. During last 5 minutes of cooking time sprinkle 1/2 cup shredded cheese over casserole. Serve once cheese is melted.
