Time for the Big Bloggy Breakfast Roundup over at Home But Not Alone.
This recipe is seriously good and super easy. The best thing about it is that you are not “boxed in” with any of the added ingredients – you can add or take away just about anything and it still turns out great. It cooks in the crockpot overnight and if your family is anything like mine, there won’t be any leftovers. I love to make this when we have company, because it is so nice to wake up with breakfast already made!

Southwest Crockpot Breakfast
1 Tbsp. butter
1-1/2 lb. bulk breakfast sausage, cooked and drained
1-2 onions, chopped (I use the birds eye frozen in the bag)
1 green bell pepper, chopped (ditto above)
4-oz. can chopped green chilies, drained (or you can sub jalepeno)
2-1/2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
18 eggs

Grease inside of crockpot with butter. Starting with sausage, layer meat, onions, peppers, chilies, and cheese, repeating the layering process until all ingredients are used.

In large mixer bowl, beat eggs with wire whisk or eggbeater until combined, then pour over mixture in the crockpot.

Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours. Serve with sour cream or fresh salsa and tortillas if desired.

Serves 12
