Crock Pot Breakfast

-- as seen in Facebook.

Haven't tried this myself, but it sounds interesting enough to keep...


1 bag 26 oz. frozen hash browns

12 eggs 1 cup milk

1 tablespoon ground mustard

1 16 oz. roll sausage maple, sage or regular sausage. Salt and pepper

16 oz. bag shredded cheddar cheese Directions:

1. Spray crock pot and evenly spread hash browns at the bottom.

2. Crack 12 eggs in a large bowl.

3. Mix well (and slowly) using a whisk.

4. Add the milk.

5. Go ahead and sprinkle in the ground mustard.

6. Add plenty of salt.... ...and lots of fresh pepper. Mix well and set aside.

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

8. Add sausage on top of hash browns.

9. Is this enough cheese? Maybe? Probably. Throw the whole big bag in there.

10. Mix it up well. Or good, depending on where you're from.

11. Pour the egg mixture over everything in the crock pot. Using a wood spoon, even everything out so it's spread evenly.

12. Turn the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours.

Some fun variations of this recipe. Before cooking (during prep) you can add: chunks of sourdough bread diced chiles salsa diced green onions

Ode to Leftover Ham (Recipe)

This is good cast-iron skillet work.

If you're down to the end of a good ham, here's something to try.
