Slow Cooker Egg and Sausage Casserole

I love having breakfast waiting for me when I get up. This was so easy to throw together and only takes about 5-6 hours, so it’s perfect for brunch or a really early breakfast. Or, if your are like me, make it the night before in the crock and put it in the fridge. Set your alarm for 5-6 hours before you want it done and get up to turn it on. Easy!


Slow Cooker Egg and Sausage Casserole

1 dozen beaten eggs
14 slices of bread
2 1/4 cups milk
2 1/2 cups grated cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
1 pound sausage, cooked and drained
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
salt and pepper, to taste
1 small can green chiles (opt)

Spray the sides of slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Cut bread into large squares.

Make layers in the slow cooker of bread, sausage, peppers, chiles, cheese; ending with a cheese layer. Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper together. Pour over slow cooker mixture, cover and turn on low. Cook for 5-7 hours.

Note: I actually made this vegetarian and gluten free by subbing gf bread and vegetarian sausage. It was delicious!

let’s get social!


  1. Hi There,

    Just thought that you’d like to know that I found your recipe because it was posted on Pintrest. Someone from my work at home forum found your Pintrest page, because they are looking for more vegetarian cooking ideas, in order to cure their Candida infection. So, they posted the Pintrest page on our forum.

    I need to lose weight so I became interested in the vegetarian thread on the forum, which led me to Pintrest, which led me to your blog (Follow all of this, lol).

    I’m so fired up, because I just moved and I all I really have for cooking is a Crock Pot. So, thanks for posting slow cooker recipes. I’m a sucker for breakfast casseroles anyway. Can’t wait to poke around your site some more.

  2. This looks so good. It’s a perfect way to start or end the day. I love the food and recipes you share with your users. While this is my first visit, I’ll definitelybe back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  3. This looks delicious! I’ve never tried eggs in the crock pot before, but there’s always a first time. I think I’ll give this a go this weekend.
