Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Crystal Farms Cheese for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

With school having started up again, I am always looking for easy recipes to make for breakfast or dinner.  I want to make sure that my kids get a good meal but I don’t always have a ton of time to prepare it.  I especially love recipes that are fast and easy.  I have been trying to use my slow cooker or crock pot more often to try to help me in making easy and fast recipes. I love that I can just throw ingredients in the slow cooker and it cooks all day or night without me having to do anything.
 
We are big fans of breakfast for dinner and we like to have that for dinner at least once a week.  Our favorite meal to have is scrambled eggs and we like them with lots of cheese in them. We even like to add cream cheese to our eggs as well to make them really cheesy.
 
Crystal Farms Cheese is a great cheese brand that is committed to providing high quality cheese products.  This Wisconsin cheese is a natural product with few preservatives.  It is a rich source of calcium, is gluten-free, and lactose tolerant.  I really like that the cheese contains low levels of lactose because that means that my son and I can enjoy it.  
 
I decided to use Crystal Farms shredded cheddar cheese and cream cheese and use them to make a slow cooker breakfast casserole.  The best thing about this casserole is that you can serve it for breakfast or for dinner.  Plus it is so easy, you can just throw the ingredients in the slow cooker and leave it overnight or all day.  This is a great easy recipe for the weekdays.  It allows you to have breakfast ready for your kids when you all wake up without any effort in the morning or it allows you to have dinner ready when you come home.
 
 
This Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole was delicious and so easy to make.  We decided to eat it for dinner so we just put the ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning and the dinner was ready when we came home from work.  The casserole contains eggs, bacon, diced potato hash browns, and Crystal Farms shredded cheddar cheese and cream cheese.  There really isn’t much prep involved, which is really great for a week day. This was a tasty easy breakfast that my whole family loved.  I hope yours enjoys it as well!

    I can’t wait to try the crock pot breakfast casserole. My husband works nights so it’ll be a great surprise for him when he comes home Saturday morning to find this waiting! (Secret – I don’t usually make breakfast on Saturdays because it’s my only day to sleep in.) Thank you in advance, and my husband thanks you too!
