Creating this Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

Growing up, on Thanksgiving or Christmas morning my family never really did a sit down breakfast. It wasn’t until recently my mom started making this slow cooker breakfast casserole.


She makes it the night before and it’s hot & ready for us in the AM. With the holiday’s being so busy and having tons of people over, this casserole makes the morning a breeze. 

The holiday season can also often be a time of year where we enjoy a variety of different foods and it can be hard on our stomach.

That’s why I’ve been taking New Chapter’s Women’s Daily Probiotic

Why I take Probiotics 

With the wedding coming up, we have been even busier than usual, traveling a lot and the fact that I can travel with this shelf stable probiotic is so helpful. 

It has helped with my digestion, immune support and hormone balance, and I love knowing that the probiotics are replenishing the good bacteria in my gut!

Speaking of hormone balance, the Chaste Tree extract (a berry extract) is what is used in the New Chapter Women’s Probiotic to promote women’s hormonal balance.

Ingredients you’ll need to make a Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole


Eggs – eggs are packed with protein. 6 grams per large egg! They are an excellent source of eight essential nutrients there and are only 70 calories per egg. 

Hash Browns – I like using frozen hash browns for this recipe for ease. However, you can also use a baguette broken into pieces ( 4 cups bread)

Ham – Ham is a good source of protein, selenium, phosphorus and zinc. It’s also a popular item to have around during the holiday season, so if you have leftovers, this breakfast casserole is a great way to use it up. 


Sharp Cheddar Cheese – Speaking of probiotics, did you know some cheeses also contain gut- benefiting bacteria? Cheddar is actually one of the best sources of probiotics, which is why I also used it in this recipe! 


 – Other probiotic cheeses include mozzarella, Gouda and cottage cheese. 


Bell Peppers – I just love the combination of eggs and bell peppers, but bell peppers also add a nutrition benefit: antioxidants. These antioxidants may help improve our immune function, great for this time of year for fighting off colds. 


Milk – As we know milk is a rich source of calcium. I prefer cow’s milk since it is fortified with Vitamin D. 

Other ingredients needed include:
 Garlic Powder
 Green Chilies
 Onion
 Dijon Mustard
 Salt and Pepper
 Garnish ideas: green onions, avocado

How to make a Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

Grease the bottom of your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place half of all of the
ingredients in the first layer: half of the bag of hash browns, cubed ham, onions, cheese and bell
peppers. Repeat the layers again with remaining ingredients, ending with the cheese. 
Then in a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, garlic powder, mustard and salt and pepper. Pour
the egg mixture over all of the ingredients in the slow cooker. 
Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. 
Garnish with diced green onions and avocado.

Can I freeze the leftovers?


Yes! Cover well with plastic wrap and then with aluminum foil and freeze for 2-3 months. 

What if I don’t have ham?


You can see use ground sausage or even bacon if you don’t have, or don’t want to use ham. 

How long does this breakfast casserole last?


 It will last for 3-4 days in your fridge.
