Slow cookers aren't just for making dinner. I make this often if we're having company overnight. I can prep it the night before and when we all get up in the morning, breakfast is served. —Barb Keith, Eau Claire, Wisconsin

Made this for Christmas morning. Thought it was very good, but did need more salt and pepper. I did use half bacon and half diced ham instead of a full pound of bacon. I also cooked it on low overnight (about 8 hours).

Easy to make and checks all the breakfast boxes!

I did not like this recipe at all! I made it exactly as is written, but it had no flavor! If I were to try this again, I would find some other seasonings for this, since salt and pepper alone were just too bland.

It tastes great with some salsa on top!

I made this with leftover Easter ham instead of the bacon. Very good. The only thing I would change next time is to thaw and dry the hash browns before adding them to the slow cooker. My finished dish ended up with tons of liquid in it that I had to suck out with a turkey baster before serving. It had to have come from the thawing potatoes. So I will definitely thaw them first next time. Otherwise, we loved this dish. It will definitely be my go-to breakfast-for-dinner dish.
