With Christmas Day being tomorrow, you probably have an abundance of things to get done. And visitors. And stress. What you don’t have – an abundance of time. Not even a spare second.

And when your massive crowd rips through the wrapping paper tomorrow morning and goes completely silent while they fixate on their new gadgets for just a few moments, the next piercing sound you’ll hear – “I’m hungry!” Not from just one … or two. But there will be a collective household cry of how hungry they all are. At the same time. You can just hear it, can’t you?

Don’t worry. That won’t happen this year. You’ve got this one under control. Because tonight while visions of sugar plumbs dance in their heads, you’ll be prepping the best Christmas breakfast ever. And the easiest. It might even have them bypassing their presents and heading straight to the kitchen.

Here’s the recipe for Crockpot Breakfast Casserole that serves 8:

1 32 oz. bag of frozen hash browns
1 lb. ham – cubed
1 onion – diced
1 green pepper – diced
1 ½ cups cheddar – shredded
1 dozen eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

Place a layer of frozen hash browns on the bottom of the slow cooker after a light mist of a non-stick spray, followed by a layer of meat, then onions, green pepper and cheese. Repeat the layering process two or three times, ending with a layer of cheese. Beat the eggs, milk, and salt and pepper together. Pour over the crockpot mixture, cover and turn on low. Cook for 10-12 hours.

If ham isn’t your favorite, use bacon or sausage. Or whatever you like. Not a fan of green pepper, chop up your favorite vegetable instead. Don’t like onion, leave it out. Feel free to add your family’s favorite spices or change up the cheese. It’s all yours.

Enjoy this no fuss recipe – personalized for your family – so they’ll enjoy their tasty and nutritional breakfast even more than the cardboard box their favorite present came in.
