Slow Cooker Egg-O-Licious-Ness

It kind of amazes me that this turns out as well as it does.  Totally tasty.  You can throw it together the night before and it’ll be ready just in time for breakfast!  Also good for using up leftovers — I’ve listed specific ingredients here, but you can basically throw whatever you have lying around in there with some onions and cheese, toss the egg mixture on top, and it ends up tasting awesome.

Oh, if you want to make this a bit more… balanced… you could probably cut back on the bacon/sausage significantly and add some fresh veggies for bulk.  I’m thinking of trying a version with leeks in it.  Mmmm, leeks.

This keeps okay in the fridge for a little while (a couple days, kind of like a frittata) and can be reheated via microwave magic.

Serve with some hot sauce and/or salsa.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1-2 onions, chopped
  • 1lb bacon, fried and chopped (I use scissors)
  • 4-6 sausages, chopped up
  • 3 jalapenos
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, whatever kind you like
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • about 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper

Directions

Grease the inside of your slow cooker (this’ll stop the eggs from baking on too much — if you forget you’ll have to soak your crockpot to get it clean.)  Divide your onions, bacon, sausage, jalapenos, and cheese into 3 or 4 and layer in the slow cooker.  Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a separate bowl, and pour the mixture over your layers.  Put a couple knobs of butter on top.  Throw on the lid.  Cook on low for 10 hours or so.  Voila, awesome egg casserole thingy.
