Slow Cooker Sausage Breakfast Casserole

Slow Cooker Sausage Breakfast Casserole
Thanksgiving is just a few days so I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes – Slow Cooker Sausage Breakfast Casserole.

Ok…I have not lost my mind and this is not a non-traditional Thanksgiving menu idea. This recipe is what I do for Thanksgiving MORNING. I will be spending hours preparing Thanksgiving dinner so the last thing that I want to do is add more work for myself. This recipe is just perfect. It feeds a lot of people and makes use of the slow cooker. You simply put it together the night before and your meal cooks while you sleep.

You get a meal filled with potatoes, cheese and tasty sun dried tomatoes. Plus it’s packed with protein thanks to the eggs and the delicious Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles.  Everyone can grab a bowl and enjoy a hearty breakfast that will hold them until the big meal is ready.

It only takes minutes to prepare and I promise, you will be thankful to have it ready on Thanksgiving morning!

Bacon, Spinach & Mushroom Quiche

Bacon, Spinach & Mushroom Quiche

Why does quiche get such a bad rap? Two of my three guys love quiche just as much as I do. My little one doesn’t like any kind of egg no matter what I do to it. By “doesn’t like”…I mean he will gag (or worse) if he is forced to try an egg dish. […]

Here in the South we don’t usually see those crazy frigid temps like our Northern neighbors, though our weather can be a bit unpredictable. For example earlier this week we had temperatures in the 80’s and today we will only get up to the low 60’s. Well that warm weather had me hankering for a […]
