This simple and hearty breakfast dish packed with eggs, hash browns, spinach, ham, and cheddar cheese is all made in the slow cooker so breakfast can be ready and waiting when you wake up.
We have a slew of house guests coming this month so I have been thinking a lot about breakfast and brunch dishes that I can have for the weekends. However with an 11 month old baby and a deep love of a slow morning cup of coffee, I need dishes that take minimal cooking. I would much rather chit chat over coffee then slave away at the stove. So this dish that is mad in the slow cooker is perfect.
Just add everything to the slow cooker for this quick and easy crockpot hash brown casserole the night before and you are golden. Eight hours later breakfast is ready to go. 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.
