Egg and Broccoli Casserole

For years, I've prepared this filling egg casserole—which is delicious for brunch—in my slow cooker. It's an unusual recipe for a slow cooker, but folks always welcome it and go back for seconds wherever I serve it. —Janet Sliter, Kennewick, Washington

    So nice to have a breakfast main dish that can be cooked at home, driven to a potluck, and still be hot! It is a bit on the bland side though - next time I'll cook some mushrooms and bacon pieces on the stove and toss them in when I lift the lid to stir. Might benefit from additional spices too - oregano maybe?

    Haven't actually made it yet, but I'm going to a potluck brunch. Sounds perfect if I double it and bring some wraps to make breakfast burritos.

    I had all the ingredients but I didn't have the 4 hours, so I baked it at 350 degrees for 1 hour, the last 15 minutes uncovered. We really liked it. I will try it with frozen spinach next time as an alternative.

    Love to serve it for brunch. Just put everything in the crock pot and you don't have to worry about it.

    Loved it. I recommend chopping up the frozen broccoli into smaller pieces. I definitely will make it again.

    This comforting dish is super easy to throw together and tastes fantastic. I did use 1 1/2 cups of cottage cheese and 1 1/2 cups of ricotta cheese and everyone loved it!
