We get it. Waking up can be difficult, and even an early bird has the occasional rough morning. Who wants to think about making breakfast when you're still half-asleep? Not us! Just one more reason why we love meal prep, for making our morning routine as easy as grab-and-go! Because of this, we want to show you a recipe for an eggs-emplary (too cheesy? =P) start to your day: Our favorite crockpot breakfast casserole recipe that is loaded with potatoes, egg, sausage, and veggies! A true breakfast of champions.
15 minutes, meal prep fam! That’s all the time it takes to assemble and prepare the ingredients for cooking for this nutritious crockpot breakfast. Once you’ve done that, the only thing you have to do is wait a couple of hours for the crockpot to do the heavy lifting, and you have a 6-serving meal! Imagine having 6 mornings a week where you didn’t have to cook breakfast before running out the door. If that sounds nice, then this crockpot breakfast meal prep recipe is surely for you!
If you've been following us for any amount of time, you'd know that we love slow cooking! There’s satisfaction in knowing a great deal of time was invested in making a meal. One wonderful thing the crockpot does for this dish it that it keeps the eggs moist, and allows them to marinate in the flavors of the veggies and sausage as everything cooks. Your 2-hour time investment results in many flavors packed into 1 healthy meal that serves for a whole week. And for that reason, we think this crockpot breakfast recipe is well worth it!
Yet another added benefit of this meal prep recipe is actually the moisture itself! Other than making for a tender, tasty meal, it also makes this crockpot breakfast ideal for freezing and reheating. Maybe you want to eat 3 of the 6 portions one week, while alternating with another breakfast option (like our bacon wrapped asparagus breakfast bowl or keto Cajun sausage breakfast scramble). No problem, we love variety too! Just portion your other 3 servings of this crockpot breakfast into your favorite meal prep container, pop them in the freezer, and voila! They’ll be ready to be reheated and eaten for next week.
Whole30 Crockpot Breakfast Casserole Ingredients:
2 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
¼ cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon sea salt
Black pepper, to taste
1 pound chicken sausage, compliant, cooked
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
4 cups fresh spinach
We all know the importance of eating your veggies, especially leafy greens. Good thing this crockpot breakfast recipe contains loads of spinach! Spinach is chock-full of vital nutrients like Vitamin A (great for the eyes and organ function), Vitamin C (for antioxidant and immune benefits), half your daily value of Vitamin K1 (for blood clotting), folic acid, iron, and calcium. Let’s not forget about the red bell peppers too! Getting their rich color from carotenoids, the red bell peppers in this crockpot breakfast recipe offer their own host of nutritional benefits! And when you add these benefits to almost 24g of protein and 18.8g of healthy fats per serving, what you have is a keto-friendly breakfast choice that will nourish your body and give it the energy it needs for a successful day.
