No Time To Make Breakfast? Make It In A Crock Pot!

A Little Spicy, A Little Savory, And VERY Cheesy!

I have to admit that after making this Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole recipe, I thought I was ultra smart.  Everything recipe I had read before about breakfast casseroles in a crockpot mentioned cooking them overnight. Ew!  While this sounds like a great idea, I personally do not like waking up at 3am to smell the bacon. Do you? No.  It makes me hungry and I can’t go back to sleep.

Instead, I decided to make this breakfast casserole recipe during the day, and I could reheat it the following morning.  But what I didn’t think about was how much we would have left over for the whole week.  Making a casserole is great when you have company, but my husband and I barely made a dent in this for dinner. Kids included, I was still left with about half of the recipe.

Here is where I got really smart. It suddenly dawned on me:  why not make breakfast burritos with it?  Ding-Ding!  I grabbed some tortillas, some plastic wrap and made 12 burritos from the leftovers!

Sometimes I surprise myself.  I have to say that I will make this again if only to fill my freezer.  My husband loves breakfast burritos from the drive-thru, and this is by far the easiest way to make them – AND we get dinner out of it, too (if you’re into the breakfast for dinner thing).


Quick Tip: Prepare all the ingredients the night before, and schedule your slow cooker to start breakfast for you in the morning.
