Great recipe for our Thanksgiving brunch. It smelled so wonderful to wake up to. Next time I'll use a slow cooker liner to make clean up even easier.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels and crumble.

Spoon 1/3 the potato mixture into the slow cooker; add 1/3 the bacon and 1/3 the Cheddar cheese. Repeat layering with remaining ingredients, ending with cheese.

  • Whisk eggs, milk, dill, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; pour over ingredients in slow cooker.

  • Cook on Low, 8 to 10 hours.

Cook's Notes:

If you half the recipe, use 8 eggs. Start at 12:00am. Add fried egg on top of casserole per serving. If using chorizo, serve with sour cream and tortillas.

This was really good! I used cooked ham in place of bacon and forewent the saute with the peppers/onion. I was not sure how this would work in the crock pot, but it worked! the texture was a bit different that you'd get in the oven, but not bad, merely different. While this isn't my *favorite* breakfast casserole, it is yummy enough that I'll make again because it's so easy to throw together the night before when we've got overnight guests. THANKS for the recipe! Read More

I have made this twice now. The first time I followed the directions and the whole family hated it. I decided I would try one more time and use this as a base but tweak it a little to make it more edible. It was much better this time around. I made the following changes: 1. I added salt and pepper to the potatoes. 2. I added cooked ham as well as the bacon. 3. I did not have cheddar cheese so I used mozzarella. 4. I used two cups of milk instead of one. 5. I added spices to the eggs season all and cumin. I let this cook for 10 hours overnight and it came out perfect. Read More

This is easy to make. Just do not over bake. It's nice when you have guests and are playing hostess. Read More

Excellent recipe! Smells heavenly and tastes great! My one and only change is that I left out the dill weed (personal preference only I'm simply not a fan of that flavor in my eggs). I have made this twice - once with bacon and once with ham (the ham was our favorite! and as a bonus I could saute it with the veggies). When I did use the bacon it was the quick cooking kind that goes in the microwave - quick easy and far less messy than bacon splattering all over your stove in a pan!:-) Next time I am going to add some mushrooms - yum!

This was a hot mess. No flavor (how can this be with bacon?) Cooking time was WAY too long. I made it for company everyone thought it was awful but tried to salt it and dress up. (the part that wasn't burned) I just gave everyone cereal bowls spoons and apologized. Read More

I've never made a casserole successfully in a crock pot/slow cooker so I was leery to try this one. I swapped bacon for ham and parsley for dill and didn't spend the time sauteeing the garlic onion and peppers. (It was Christmas Eve! Had to get to bed before Santa arrived!) After reading a lot of the comments and reviews we reduced the milk to 1/2 a cup and only let it cook for 5 hours on low. (That was PLENTY!) While setting an alarm was a bummer if we make it for a brunch starting it when we get up at 5 is perfect timing. SUCCESS! The kids ate it up the husband said it was delish and even I was happy with the taste and texture. I may make it with less tater tots next time and more cheese! Definitely going to try the sausage or bacon version next time! Thank you for sharing this! A new Christmas Morning tradition is born! Read More

I did not care for this.... texture was spongy and not particularly pleasant. Smell wasn't exactly anything I'd want to smell either. Flavor was pretty bland and watery. Read More
