Here in Blacksburg, Virginia, home of the Virginia Tech Hokies, we do a lot of tailgating.  And when the team isn't doing so well (*cough* this year *cough*), the games are often around noontiime... Which means breakfast tailgating.  Now, I don't know about you, but I am NOT an early morning person, so the last thing I want to do is jump out of bed to make a bunch of food to take to a tailgate!  Which is where this awesome recipe comes in.  You basically throw it into the crock pot the night before and wake up & eat!

This recipe is straight from here, but I did make a couple of changes (adding in some shredded pepper jack cheese, using spicy breakfast sausage instead of italian sausage, adding some garlic powder Smiley ).

Slow Cooker Sausage Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients:

1 (30 oz) package frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
1 lb ground sausage (I used spicy breakfast sausage), browned and drained
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
12 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions:

Spray a 6 quart slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (you cannot make this recipe in a smaller crock pot because it wont fit). Layer 1/2 of the potatoes on the bottom of slow cooker.

Top with half of the (pre-cooked!  that's important) sausage, cheeses (mix them together), onions, green peppers, and red peppers. Repeat the layers again. Or, do what I did, and forget one of the layers, try to dig out / down to add it, then wind up just mixing everything together until the next step...  Grin

Beat eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in large bowl with a wire whisk until well blended. Pour egg mixture evenly over potato-sausage mixture.

Cook on low setting for 8 hours or until eggs are set.  Wake up and enjoy!  Or... if you were doing something else, you could cook it on a high setting for 4 hours.  But, I can't think why you'd ever want to!   Cheesy

I never considered using a crock pot for breakfast.  Thanks for the inspiration!

Wonder how it would be with O'Brien potatoes. Cut out the chopping of onions and peppers.
Sounds wonderful.
