Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole Recipe
Wake up to a wonderful aroma wafting from the kitchen. This Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole has everything you crave: Potatoes, salsa, spring onions, cheese, and green chili for a spicy edge. This filling breakfast doubles as a great brunch, especially if you’re expecting company. Prepare the casserole the night before so you can wake up to this awesomely delicious breakfast.

When cooked well (not fried or loaded with cheese and bacon), potatoes are extremely healthy. They’re rich in fibers, Vitamin B6, potassium, and a load of other nutrients. Potatoes help protect against cardiovascular disease and cancer, too!

The egg is one of the healthiest foods in existence. Eggs contain selenium, folate, protein, choline, Vitamins B2, B12, B5, A, and many other vitamins and minerals that are essential to our health.

    If I use a small dish inside my slow cooker – should I use it like a bain marie and put an inch ir so of water in the bottom of the slow cooker and sit the smaller dish into the water?

    Will this work in a 4 quart {not oval shaped} crockpot slow cooker?
