Hearty Slowcooker Overnight Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients:

1 2 lb. package frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
1 lb. ground sausage, browned and drained
1 lb. bacon, cooked and chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 small onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
12 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions:

Grease a large 6 quart slow cooker with cooking spray.

Layer one third the hash browns in the bottom of the slow cooker.

Top with one third of the sausage, bacon, cheese, onions, green pepper, and red pepper. Repeat layers with the remaining ingredients.

Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper.

Pour egg mixture over the top of the potato cheese layers.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours on low or 4 hours on high.

Serves up to 8 people.

Notes:  If your family is partial to more cheese, increase the amount of cheese between layers, and add a generous amount to the top as well.

If you prefer to cook this casserole overnight, do it on the low setting to prevent burnt edges and bottoms.  Not all slow cookers are created equal and some get hotter than others.
