Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day – Leftovers for Breakfast Slow Cooker Casserole
(240 calories | *5 WW SmartPoints)
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.
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.
