Breakfast casserole

Crockpot Breakfast Casserole

Overnight breakfast success

I love using my crockpot for all different kind of recipes.  And really, there's no reason not to. Crockpots are simple to use easy to clean up, and an energy-efficient way to cook. But as great as they are for dinners and snacks, breakfast is where a crock pot really rocks.
 
There's nothing better than coming downstairs to a nice hot breakfast, ready and waiting. But you didn't have to cook it. Because you made it in the crockpot. After all, if you're willing to leave it on all day to make dinner, why not leave it on overnight to make breakfast? Especially when you're cooking for a crowd. After all if you've got a house full of guests that's the time you don't want to be stuck in the kitchen cooking anyway. So let your crockpot do all the work and you'll look like a kitchen star.
 
This casserole is a family favorite. While it takes a little bit of prep time it's delicious and totally worth it.
