Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

      

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 139)

I love making breakfast dishes like this slow cooker breakfast casserole on the weekend so that we can enjoy the leftovers warmed up during the week.

It keeps things quick and easy in the morning.

Combining frozen hash browns, turkey sausage or lean ham, cheese and eggs, this hearty and delicious slow cooker breakfast casserole keeps me satisfied for hours.

Of all the crock pot breakfast dishes I’ve made since October, this is one of our favorites. Rod, Mom and I all liked it a LOT.

Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

I adapted the original recipe, from Fix-It and Forget-It New Cookbook: 250 New Delicious Slow Cooker Recipes!. I made a half batch that provided 6 good-size servings, substituted turkey sausage for the ham, skipped the chopped onion, and used reduced fat cheddar cheese.

According to my calculations, each serving has 261 calories and *7 Weight Watchers Points Plus.

This slow cooker breakfast casserole would also be delicious with cubed lean ham instead of the cooked sausage.

    This looks delicious. Could egg beaters be used instead and save some points or shouldn’t egg beaters be used in the crockpot?

    Thanks,
    I do so enjoy your recipes!

    So i am curious. Do you get up at 4:00 in the morning to make this recipe so its ready for 8:00am or do you have the crock pot sitting with raw ingredients in it on a timer to turn on in the middle of the night?

      Hi Judi,

      Oh my goodness, neither of those ideas really appeal to me, lol :-) This is the kind of recipe I would make on the weekend for a late brunch and then portion out the leftovers for quick and easy breakfasts that I rewarm in the microwave during the week. I’m also a big fan of these kinds of breakfast/brunch casseroles for lunch and supper from time to time.
