Sunday Slow Cooker:  Breakfast Hashbrown Spinach & Ham Casserole

With school and weekend activities in full swing, the long lazy weekends of summer are becoming a thing of the past. So why not eliminate the need to make breakfast one morning? Just add everything to the crockpot for this quick and easy crockpot hashbrown casserole the night before. Eight hours later breakfast is ready to go. This is also a great meal to serve to guests. Feel free to mix up the veggies and cheese to make any variety you choose. Personally, I love this version with ham, cheddar, and spinach. My other favorite includes goat cheese, spinach, red peppers, and crumbled turkey sausage.

    We tried this recipe last night. Its just my husband and I that will eat it so I halved the recipe. I also needed to use my crockpot right away after breakfast so I used my crockpot as a waterbath and the casserole in a glass bowl inside. It turned out really yummy!
