This slow cooker casserole is a wonderful way to turn the leftovers sitting around in your fridge into a hearty and delicious breakfast.

I used chopped cooked chicken, broccoli, red bell peppers and onion, since that’s what I had on hand.

But you could use any combination of leftover cooked meat and vegetables in this “Leftovers for Breakfast” slow cooker casserole.

Leftovers for Breakfast Slow Cooker Casserole

I adapted the recipe, which reminded me of a cross between a hash and a crustless quiche, from More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: 200 Brand-New, Budget-Friendly, Slow-Cooker Recipes, a great cookbook by the talented Stephanie O’dea.

I made a half but increased the number of eggs to make it more quiche-like.

Rod, Mom and I all liked it. Hearty and satisfying, this slow cooker casserole could work for lunch or supper too.

    I love the ideas of leftovers in something good. I used them in a quiche. A crockpot recipe sounds even better.

    Wishes for tasty dishes.
