Hash Brown Egg Brunch Recipe

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 waiting. —Barb Keith, Eau Claire, Wisconsin

  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

"Followed the recipe exactly as printed. Cooked overnight - the consistency was perfect! The taste was blah. Covering with salsa improved the flavor immensely. Next time I think I will add a little dried mustard and maybe a pinch of garlic."

"It was really good but I agree it needs more recipe I saw that was similar used dill so I may try that next time. I cooked it overnight as well which was about 8-10 hrs and it was perfectly cooked!"

"This works great if you cook it on low for 8-10 hours. I used crumbled sausage that I pre-cooked and Monterey Jack cheese as well as Cheddar. Everyone loved it and will definately make it again. I turned my crockpot on low at 11:30 before heading to bed and it was still warm when I served breakfast at 10 the next morning."

"Made a similar recipe found on Pinterest. It was a big gloppy mess! Would never attempt one of these breakfast casseroles in the crock pot again. Just as easy to assemble the night before, and pop in the oven in the morning."

"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."
