Crock Pot Egg Scramble

It’s true- you can make a seriously delicious egg bake in your crock pot! (What!?) ….yup. This actually works.

Here’s the thing about Crock Pots: They all cook at different paces. So I recommend making this for the first time during the day and watching it to see how long it needs to cook until you’re happy with it, because as awesome as it is to wake up to a warm and satisfying egg scramble, I’d imagine that it would be equally disappointing to wake up a big bowl of sad brown stuff. Mine, for example, only took four hours on low, but we also like our eggs very soft, and, my crock pot cooks things more quickly than others. So it’s worth watching it once the first time. Then you can rest easy the next time around. There, that’s my shpeal.

What’ COOL as heck about this though, is that if 8 hours is the amount of time your crock pot decides to cook this for before it’s ready, you can make it before bed, and wake up to a delicious CROCK O’ EGGS! Amazingggg… 

However, if your crock pot cooks it for any other amount of time, you can make it during the day for that amount of time and have eggs for dinner. …Eggs for dinner are my jam.

Let me know how you do! This is perfect for feeding a large crowd some breakfast! (With only one pot to clean afterwards!)- WOO!

Crock Pot Egg Scramble
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8 servings
 
Ingredients
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 (28 oz.) bag frozen Potatoes O’Brien (I prefer Ore Ida brand)
  • 2 (7 oz.) packages frozen fully cooked sausage links (I prefer Banquet Brown ‘N Serve)
  • 16 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of Milk
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Spray the bottom of the crock pot with cooking spray and dump in the frozen potatoes.
  2. Thaw the sausage links so that you’re able to slice them up into chunks of desired size. Mix them in with the potatoes along with the ¾ of the shredded cheese.
  3. Whisk the eggs together in a large bowl and add in the milk.
  4. Sprinkle with desired amounts of salt and pepper, then pour into the crock pot.
  5. Mix it all together, then top with remaining cheese, trying not to let the cheese topping hit the sides so that the top doesn’t brown too much on the side.
  6. Cook on low for 5-8 hours, once the top begins to brown slightly, it’s ready!
