Christmas Morning Slow Cooker Egg Bake Recipe
The aroma of this egg bake will be wafting from the slow cooker waiting for you to try.
- 18 eggs
- Pepper to taste
- 2-3 cup breakfast meat (ham, sausage, bacon or combination)
- 10 oz. diced tomatoes and green chilies, drained
- 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced (optional)
- 28 oz. frozen diced potatoes
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
- Slow Cooker
Whisk eggs with the seasonings; add meat, tomatoes and green chilies, and mushrooms; stir to combine. Slow-cooker method: Pour ¾ bag frozen potatoes into greased slow cooker; top with 1½ cups cheese, then ¾ egg mixture. Layer rest of potatoes, then eggs on top; save remaining cheese for later. Cook on high 3-4 hours or low 6-8. Top with remaining cheese at the end. Oven method: Put all of the potatoes in a greased 9×13 pan; pour mixture on top, bake at 350° for 45-55 minutes. Sprinkle with 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese the last 5 minutes.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryAnnH from Wonderful Egg Casserole! We all loved it and I am not a huge fan of egg casserole. Used frozen mini tater-tots, instead of diced potatoes--worked wonderfully. Used all sausage, hmmmmmmm. We did the oven method and it worked great. Thanks for another great recipe, Jane!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mnh5000 from Excellent Egg Bake - Oven Users Beware! I wanted to make this in the slow cooker overnight but time got away from me so I figured I'd just do it in the oven per the directions and it would be ready in an hour. No way. Not even nearly done, and I have a great oven with very accurate temps. It probably went an extra 35-45 minutes past the recommended 55 minutes. In the end, it was excellent an everyone loved it. Great flavor. We did ham & bacon. I'd definitely make it again but next time either in the crock pot overnight or I'll get started earlier so I don't have a houseful of starving people waiting on breakfast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TSBright from BEST Egg Casserole Ever! Who would have thought I could have breakfast ready when I wake up! This was perfect Christmas morning, instead of slaving in the kitchen - I actually got to enjoy in the festivities! ps - this makes a GREAT little "Appreciation Breakfast" for your team and you don't have to get up before the chickens!
