Crockpot Overnight Breakfast Casserole

With the holidays quickly (too quickly!) approaching and schedules getting busier by the minute, I’m sure you’re looking to have one less thing to worry about (or at least I am!). This Crockpot Overnight Breakfast Casserole can be the perfect answer to that request! You just put it in the slow cooker, go to sleep while it’s cooking, and serve it up in the morning!


Crockpot Overnight Breakfast Casserole is a classic breakfast casserole with eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, and cheese. It’s a crowd-pleaser, for sure, and Crockpot Overnight Breakfast Casserole is large enough to feed a crowd!

If you love cheese, feel free to add some extra to the layers to make the Crockpot Overnight Breakfast Casserole extra gooey and delicious.

I’m not usually a breakfast casserole maker, but this looks so simple and lovely. I’m sort of also considering making it without the eggs (maybe add some cream instead or something for that layer) and then serving it with customized eggs the next morning.

This looks amazing! I may just do one meat instead of 2 but it looks great! Thank you for the recipe, I will be trying it for Christmas morning. One question, how long would this keep in the fridge or could I freeze any leftovers? Thanks again!

I made mine using a crock pot liner bag. If you use a crock pot liner you can carefully lift the casserole out of the crock pot and put it in a dish–bag and all! I needed a disposal dish to take this dish to a pot luck and this was a good solution. It will be easier if you use a 2nd set of hands when lifting.

I plan on making this for a bridal shower brunch, how long do you think I could leave this on the warm setting? And do you think I could cook this longer, than the 8 hours, on a low setting without the eggs over cooking? Any other tips will be much appreciated! Thanks!

I think the eggs would probably over cook if you added any cook time to it. I haven’t done it with this recipe, but in the past I’ve cooked a recipe *almost* all the way (so like 6ish hours). Then refrigerated until I needed it. Then cooked it for the remaining cook time, plus an hour (that would be 3 hours for this recipe) to account for it being cold from the refrigerator. That might work.

And for warming, I’ve had it set for warm for 3 hours, and it was okay then. I would just try to keep an eye on it.

Was very exited about finding this recipe! I’m all about convenience so I opted for the fully cooked sausage crumbles from Jimmy Dean. I made this for brunch Sunday afternoon but was worried about the cook time since my crock pot does cook hot at low. I wanted to serve at 11:30, so I got up at 4 am to start it. I put everything in the crock pot ahead of time except the egg mixture. I used 1 bag of Simply Potatoes (shredded), 2 bags of Jimmy Dean Meat Lovers Sausage/Bacon crumbles (fully cooked). 1 chopped onion, and 2 cans of mild chopped green chilies instead of the bell peppers and layered everything per the instructions.. It was ready to eat in 6 hours, so I turned it on warm and lifted the lid, the edges were getting dark. I heated flour tortillas and offered fresh salsa and sour cream to make breakfast tacos! OMG – this was a huge hit with my guests! I used a 6 qt oval Crock Pot and I will only plan to cook it 6 hours next time, and there will be a next time. Thank you!

I love breakfast casseroles and traditionally make them in the Oven. I just made this last night. My spouse has a lot of group breakfasts for work and leaves around 5:30 am. I figured this would spare me the time of getting up at 4am and cooking. I timed it to be exactly 8 hours on low. I woke up with 29 minutes left on the count down and it smelled a little burnt. I checked the sides which had separated from the cooker and they were burnt. I ended up making a 2nd casserole with the leftovers for her to take to work. I don’t think I would try this again for a work function… maybe if it was just with family.

Good recipe. I definitely agree that average cook time is more like 4-6 hours on low. I tried to set it for “overnight,” cooking it about 6.5 hours and the edges were overdone and recipe overall a little dry. I will try it again and tag team with my insomniac husband for a 5 hour cook time – turning it either on or off in the early morning hours.

I made a version of this yesterday (basically the same, but different type of potatoes) as a dry run before Christmas morning breakfast. It was very good, but it only took 3 hours to cook and that was on low. My Crockpot is not a hot cooker either so beware of the cooking time! I’m going to make it for our breakfast for sure, but plan on keeping a close eye on it. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

This is a great recipe! I have made this dish twice for a group of hungry high school swimmers. These boys devoured it each time! It’s a big hit And, the house smells wonderful in the morning after cooking all night in the crock pot. We will definitely serve this again and again!

I made this Easter morning for Church sunrise breakfast. It was perfect with 1 slight change. I did put 2 tsp of dried mustard. I made it before Easter and it seemed like it was missing something. Other recipes called for dry mustard so I added. I have a Hamilton Beach slow cooker with a temp probe. I set it for 155 degrees on low. It was done in about 3 hours and held warm until I left for church. I have also added 1 cup of salsa and it was very good . Great recipe. Very versatile.

I have older oval crockpot or slow cooker so no timer or auto shutoff. Not an early morning riser either! I’d like to serve around 9 a.m. I’m getting from above comments it will be overcooked if I start it at midnight or 1 a.m. What’s my solutuion besides not serving it?

My Crock Pot that I made this in is also an older model (8-10 years old) and also oval. No auto or timer or anything, and it was fine on the full 8 hours. I’m guessing for those that it’s over-done, they have newer and/or hotter crock pots! So I personally would be fine turning it on at 12 or 1 and having it be done between 6-8am (you can turn it off or to warm at that point since it will still stay really hot as long as it’s still in the crock). If you’re really worried about it, I also have this super easy to throw together egg breakfast casserole. Our family has been making it for as long as I can remember, and it’s really yummy. https://www.thegraciouswife.com/easy-egg-breakfast-casserole/

Can the ingredients be put into the crock pot and then put in the refrigerator until it’s time to start cooking? If it only takes 3-4 hours to cook, I would have to start cooking it around 2 a.m. in order for it to be ready in the morning and would like to have it all put together first.

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?

Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.

You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.

Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.

Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.

Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.

Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
