Use That Slow Cooker
Check out all the overnight recipes you can make in your slow cooker. From egg casseroles to stuffed French toast, the options are varied and delicious. Just turn the appliance on, and a great meal is ready when you awake.
Here's one tasty recipe to try in your slow cooker:
- 1 pound breakfast sausage
- 1 cup sliced green onions
- 2 pounds frozen hashbrowns
- 1 pound shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 dozen eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 medium white onion, diced
- 1 red pepper, diced
- 1 green pepper, diced
Sauté the breakfast sausage, diced onion, and peppers together until the sausage is thoroughly cooked. Layer hashbrowns and the sausage and pepper mixture in the slow cooker, sprinkling each layer with cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Beat the eggs with the milk, and pour this over the layers. Cook for 8 hours in the slow cooker on low. Serve with fresh fruit.
