Slow Cooker Bacon Cheddar Egg Casserole
I love making breakfast for dinner. Breakfast foods at breakfast time don’t always work out. Either I’m not hungry or I’m in too big of a hurry to make something like bacon and eggs or waffles. That’s why it’s fun to have one day a week where I serve breakfast for dinner.
This Slow Cooker Bacon Cheddar Egg Casserole is a winner! This is a simple casserole and it could really be changed in a lot of ways and still be good. For example, swap out the bacon bits with bite-size pieces of sausage or cubed ham. You could throw in a chopped red pepper or some sundried tomatoes for some extra color and flavor. Try a different kind of cheese. It’s really up to you and your preferences.

What Slow Cooker Cooker Did You Use?
To make Slow Cooker Bacon Cheddar Egg Casserole I went with my 3-quart casserole crock made by the Crock-Pot brand.* I have loved this casserole shaped crockpot for recipes just like this. I love that the crock insert is completely oven and dishwasher safe. I love how if you want to brown the top of a casserole you can do that quickly in the oven after it cooks all day in the slow cooker. Or if you want to bake something in the oven and then put it into the crockpot and keep it warm on the counter, you can do that too. They cost around $40 and I think totally worth the investment!Print

Hashbrowns, eggs, bacon, cheddar and spinach are all combined to make a scrumptious breakfast casserole that is perfect for a weekend breakfast or even breakfast for dinner.
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup half and half
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 cup frozen hashbrowns
- Salt and pepper
- 2 handfuls of spinach
- 1/2 cup bacon bits
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
- Beat eggs. In a bowl whisk together the eggs and the half and half. Add in 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Set aside.
- Layer ingredients. Spray you slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Layer the hashbrowns in the bottom of the pan. Lightly salt and pepper the hashbrowns. Then layer on the spinach, bacon bits and finally the cheddar. Pour the egg mixture over the top of everything.
- Cook. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 4-6 hours. The cooking time in this recipe will vary widely depending on what size of slow cooker you use and how hot it cooks. The larger the slow cooker the quicker the eggs will cook.
- Serve. Cut the casserole and serve. You can also brown the top under your broiler, if you prefer.
If you want to make this healthier/lower carb you can use cauliflower rice in the place of the hashbrowns. You can also leave out the hashbrown layer altogether.
I used my 3-quart casserole crock made by the Crock-Pot brand.*

Can this be made in the instapot? Looks delicious!
yes here is the IP version: https://www.365daysofcrockpot.com/instant-pot-bacon-cheddar-egg-casserole/
I made this yesterday morning for brunch using my 6 quart crock-pot, as per the recipe. It was ready in 2 hours and super yummy!! I’m thinking of buying the 3 quart crock-pot though for recipes such as this one, making it a thicker consistency than a flat one. lol

Is the spinach chopped or whole leaf? This looks delicious!! I have a 7 qt cooker so I think i will double the recipe…does it keep well in the fridge for a couple of days?
I did whole leaf, but chopped would work too. I have never kept it in the fridge that long because we usually eat it all 🙂 I bet if stored in an airtight container it would be fine.
Thank you! I’m very excited to try this!
Can this be doubled in a 6 qt. Slow cooker? Would the time be doubled also?
Yes you can double it, keep the cooking time the same or maybe add 30 minutes.
Do you bake the hash browns before putting them in the crockpot?
