Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Well everyone says that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so surely it is a good idea to have breakfast at dinner time?? It is for this reason that I have come up with this recipe for a breakfast casserole, cooked in my trusty slow cooker.


Ingredients

* Packet of Sausages (around 8-10)
* 4 Rashers of Bacon Grilled Until Crispy
* 125g Cherry Tomatoes Halved
* Tin of Bake Beans
* Packet of Hash Browns
* 12 Eggs
* 250g Grated Cheese

Preparation

* Cook the hash browns, for around 5 minutes, just long enough so that you are able to shred them.

* At the same time grill your sausages for around 5 minutes, again just enough to brown the skins.

* Spray your slow cooker with fry lite or coat in some butter, makes sure it is completely covered.

* Put a layer of hash browns over the bottom of your slow cooker.

* Then put a layer of sausages, beans and tomatoes and sprinkle some grated cheese over the top.

* Repeat the last two steps.

* Beat all of the eggs together, adding in a splash of milk, pour over the mixture of layers in the slow cooker.

* Break up the bacon and sprinkle over the top and sprinkle over a final layer of cheese.

* Cook on low for around 6 hours.


This makes a very morish dinner, I was surprised myself at just how well it turned out as I was expecting the egg to by slightly dry for the length of cooking time but the texture was just right. 

You can serve this as it is for a dinner, or perhaps pop it in a wrap to have for lunch or breakfast. 

It is a very versatile recipe as you can add in any ingredients that you like, I'm thinking if adding in black pudding next time. 

So what do you think, is breakfast for dinner the future?
