Recipe Friday: Slow Cooker Sausage Breakfast Casserole

As soon as the cooler weather hits the Midwest, my crockpot comes out of the pantry and back into its familiar spot of my counter.  When I saw this recipe on the Jimmy Dean website, I knew it would be great for a large family gathering (such as Christmas morning), breakfast for a sleep over party, or a weekend scrapbooking retreat.

Slow Cooker Sausage Breakfast Casserole

1 pkg. (26 ounces) frozen shredding hash brown potatoes
1 pkg. Jimmy Dean® Hearty Original Sausage Crumbles
1 cup (4 ounces) shredding mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredding parmesan cheese
1/2 cup julienne cut sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained
6 green onions, sliced
12 eggs
1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 ground black pepper

1. Spray a 6 quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Layer 1/2 of the potatoes on the bottom of slow cooker. 
2. Top with half of the sausage, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, sun dried tomatoes and green onion. Repeat layering.
3. Beat eggs, milk and pepper in large bowl with a wire whisk until well blended. 
4. Pour evenly over potato-sausage mixture.
5. Cook on low setting for 6-8 hours or on high setting for 3-4 hours or until eggs are set. 

12 servings (about 1 cup each)

Mmm.. now that is good eats!
