Best Crock-Pot Meaty Breakfast

To make this crock pot Meat Lovers Breakfast, I adapted a recipe that I posted earlier for Meat Lovers Breakfast Casserole.

I love to make this slow cooker version because when you wake up your breakfast is completely ready.  The other benefit is how wonderful the entire house smells first thing in the morning.  You have to plan ahead and prepare the casserole the night before.  Next, plan on what time you will be eating it the next morning.  This breakfast casserole only takes 5 1/2 to 6 hours to cook on low.  You will have to get up early and place the slow cooker in the crock-pot base and turn it on.

If you have never cooked with Country Ham, you will have a real treat.  It is cured with salt and then smoked in a smokehouse. Country Hams are salty.  You really do not need to add extra salt.  Before refrigeration, salt was the perfect solution to preserve and season food.  It reminds me of how the Bible tells us to season our words.  I believe Colossians 4:6 is saying to let our words be seasoned with the Love of God.  Let’s think about how we can let our words encourage our family and friends.

Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.”  Colossians 4:6  Lord, I pray that my words could always be seasoned with grace.

Best Slow Cooker Meaty Breakfast

Best Slow Cooker Meaty Breakfast


  • 4 cups of frozen hash browns cubed or shredded (about 1/2 of a 2 pound bag)
  • 3/4 pound of Country Ham, cooked and drained, diced into bite size pieces,
  • 1 pound of Maple Sausage, Cooked and drained
  • 8 slices of bacon, cooked hard and crumbled
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided (one cup to layer on top)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Spray the slow cooker with a cooking spray.
  2. Layer the bacon, sausage, and ham.
  3. Beat together 12 eggs and 2 cups milk
  4. Add 1 TB Worcestershire Sauce, 1 cup cheddar cheese, dry mustard, and the black pepper.
  5. Pour over the country ham, sausage, bacon.
  6. With the back of the spoon, pat the meat down under the egg mixture.
  7. Layer 1 cup of cheese on top of the egg mixture.
  8. Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours. I normally have everything ready in the slow cooker and simply get up and place it in the crock pot base very early in the morning. That way when we get up it is ready.
  9. I know it will be early in the morning to turn the crock pot on, but it is so worth having breakfast ready.

    Ashley, The hashbrowns are the same texture as a hashbrown casserole. They are incorporated with all the other ingredients so they are not crunchy. Blessings, Diane Roark

    I used my 4 quart crock-pot. This recipe will make 9 to 12 servings. It probably should make 12 but I have a house full of teenagers who eat a lot. Thank you for stopping by Recipes For Our Daily Bread. Blessings Always, Diane Roark
