In our house, we love having breakfast for dinner. I make this casserole in a crockpot on busy days, because there is very little that needs to be done, and if I’m not home, the kids or the hubby can do the other steps for me. Then we can all enjoy this together for dinner.

Cowboy Breakfast in the Crockpot

To begin, brown a pound of bulk breakfast sausage.



While it is cooking, cube 6 or 7 red or gold potatoes.


Dice a red onion.


Then de-seed and dice a poblano pepper.


Stir these all together in a crockpot that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.


Allow these to cook on low for 6 hours. Then beat together 10 eggs, 1/3 cup of milk, and a teaspoon each of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. Pour the mixture over the top.


Then sprinkle on some grated cheese – cheddar, Monterey jack, pepper-jack, you decide.


Allow this to cook covered for another hour, or until the eggs are set and cheese is melted.


Serve with your favorite salsa or hot sauce. Enjoy!
