Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day - Leftovers for Breakfast Slow Cooker Casserole
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 batch, but increased the number of eggs to make it more quiche-like.
How Many Calories and WW Points in this Breakfast Casserole?
According to my calculations each serving has 240 calories and:
5 *SmartPoints (Green plan)
5 *SmartPoints (Blue plan)
5 *SmartPoints (Purple plan)
6 *PointsPlus (Old plan)
These nutritional estimates per 1-cup serving when made with chicken breast, chopped broccoli, chopped red bell pepper and onion. Other meats and vegetables may modify the calorie/points count slightly.
Rod, Mom and I all liked it. Hearty and satisfying, this slow cooker casserole could work for lunch or supper too. Enjoy!
