Slow Cooker Sausage Breakfast CasseroleJIMMY DEAN
There’s so much you can do with a slow cooker. It’s pretty spectacular how you can combine several different foods in one pot, then shut the lid, and about eight or nine minutes later, you have a full meal. With this slow cooker sausage breakfast casserole recipe, once you try a bite, you’ll be surprised that just a few minutes ago, you tossed sausage, hash browns, two kinds of cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, onions, and seasonings into a single pot and now there’s a fully cooked, ready-to-eat meal— plus very few pots and bowls to clean up. Who knows, you might never want to make a stove-top recipe again…
One of the best parts of this breakfast casserole is the sausage. We suggest using Jimmy Dean® Original Sausage Crumbles, which is made with pieces of premium, pre-cooked pork sausage and Jimmy Dean’s signature blend of spices. Also, if our prediction is on point, you may be returning to this recipe so often that you’ll want some options for alternative ingredients. For example, instead of pork sausage pieces, you might want to try one of Jimmy Dean®’s other ready-to-eat sausage products, like Turkey Sausage Crumbles, which is made with premium turkey and a blend of unique spices. You can make an ordinary morning extraordinary by adding Jimmy Dean®’s Meat Lovers crumbles with bacon and sausage to your casserole.
Wondering what to serve alongside your egg, potato and sausage feast? Well, this slow cooker casserole is the main course and side dishes all in one: it’s got your meat serving, scrambled eggs, hash browns, plus cheese, tomatoes and spices. Another name for this casserole might be an egg, cheese, and sausage omelet. But to make a real omelet, you have to juggle more than a few stovetop pots and mixing bowls at once. No one wants to start their morning doing that much work.
- Spray a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Layer ½ of the potatoes on the bottom of slow cooker.

- Beat eggs, milk salt and pepper in large bowl with a wire whisk until well blended.
