SLOW COOKER SAUSAGE BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

Made-to-order omelets are a breakfast I always enjoy but rarely execute in my own home. The extensive prep and required attention over the stove so early in the morning means I reserve filling egg breakfasts for when I am the guest of honor.

That is, until I realized that with a bag of frozen potatoes, fresh spinach, pork sausage, and Swiss cheese at my side I can mix up a mean breakfast — and most of that cooking takes place while I sleep.

No diner-style breakfast is complete without a side of potatoes. While the buttery lace of hash brown potatoes has its place, I am partial to the crispy small dice of home fries.

For this slow cooker casserole, take a helping hand from the freezer section and buy frozen diced potatoes. Without the fuss of peeling, dicing, and parcooking, this breakfast comes together quickly.

Breakfast casseroles are ideal for serving a large crowd or making breakfast ahead for the week. They’re also a saving grace on nights when breakfast for dinner is on the menu. With the right proportion of egg and dairy to bind fluffy potatoes, richly browned sausage, and tender spinach, it’s a hearty breakfast to carry you through lunch.

Whether you want to call it an overnight omelet or breakfast casserole, you should greet the day with a large scoop of it on your plate and a bottle of hot sauce on the table.
