Easy Recipes: A Texas-Sized Breakfast with @PetitJeanMeats #TxBacon

Serving my kids a hot breakfast during the school week is really important to me.   Here is a favorite breakfast recipe that is really simple to pull together and cooks in the crockpot.

It is perfect to prepare the night before. Then breakfast is ready when everyone gets up the next morning. This is also a delicious breakfast for dinner idea.

You can use cooked bacon, sausage or ham for this recipe. We are going to use @PetitJeanMeats Peppered Ham.

Ingredients:

  • 30 oz frozen shredded plain hashbrowns
  • 1-2 cups cooked bacon, ham or sausage (diced or chopped)
  • 1/2 of an onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste (I omitted the pepper since we were using peppered ham)

Here is our ham. I grabbed the @PetitJeanMeats Peppered Ham at WalMart.

It is prepackaged in slices. I just diced it up.

Mix together your eggs and milk (and salt and pepper if you’re using it).

Whisk until well combined.

Dice up the onion and bell pepper.

Evenly add the frozen hashbrowns to your crockpot.

Pour the egg mixture over top.

Add the ham, veggies and cheese.

Mix well.

Pop a lid on it and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours. (If you’re doing an overnight version, just make sure your crockpot will switch to warm automatically once it reaches the cook time. My crockpot has a built-in timer.)

This is how it will look when it’s done.

And your house will smell like breakfast.

Plate it up and serve by itself or add some fruits to the side.

My guys love grapes and orange slices.

This breakfast is perfect for a busy school  morning.

This recipe makes a lot, so you can store the leftovers in the fridge and have breakfast for the entire week. Crockpot Hashbrown Casserole came from once of my favorite crockpot websites- A Year of Slow Cooking.

    Wow this looks great, seems like you could make some serious alterations to it as well for diversity. Maybe even use the left-overs as breakfast burrito filling…fill, wrap, flash freeze, wrap individuals, bag them all up and freeze for grab and go. Perfect solution for my family since the adults are up an hour before the kids.

    This looks delicious! DH has been getting up at 4:30 every morning.. and I just can’t get myself awake enough to make breakfast that early. This recipe may just be a life saver. :)
