Slow Cooker Egg Casserole with Sausage and Red Pepper | Family Economics

By Erin

egg casseroleI love the versatility of the slow cooker.

I recently discovered the art and science of overnight slow cooking. I love the idea of waking up to a hot breakfast, ready in the slow cooker. And I love the idea of slow cooking a batch of granola or grits, and that it’s waiting for me to enjoy in the morning.

This recipe works beautifully in the slow cooker. There are no limits to this recipe. It could be used for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

If you like to enjoy it for breakfast, simply cook it overnight*. After the four hours are up, the slow cooker will switch to “warm” setting and keep it warm for you into the early morning hours. If you’d like to have this for lunch, simply start it after cleaning up your breakfast dishes. And if you’d like to serve this for dinner, set the slow cooker on low around 1:30 or 2 p.m. and dinner will be waiting for you when you get home from errands and/or practices.

Slow Cooker Egg Casserole with Sausage and Red Pepper


1 pound Italian sausage
4 slices bread, torn into pieces
1 red pepper, seeded and diced

12 eggs

Salt and pepper to taste


1. In a medium skillet, brown the sausage. Drain and set on paper towels until ready.
2. Spray the bottom of your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Add bread pieces, diced red pepper, chopped red onion and browned sausage to the base of the slow cooker.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk and season with salt and pepper.
4. Pour the egg mixture over the bread and sausage in the slow cooker. Set on high and cook for four hours.
