Christmas Morning Crockpot Casserole

Have your breakfast ready and waiting Christmas morning with this easy and delicious casserole.

1 bag– 26 oz. frozen hash browns
12 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon ground mustard (this is a dry or powdered mustard)
16 oz. of sausage, maple, sage or any type sausage you want to use
Salt and pepper to taste
16 oz. bag shredded cheddar cheese (2 bags of 2 cups per bag)
Directions: 1. Spray crock pot and evenly spread hash browns at the bottom. 2. Crack 12 eggs in a large bowl. 3. Mix well (and slowly) using a whisk. 4. Add the milk. 5. Go ahead and sprinkle in the ground mustard. This might sound like a weird ingredient, but I’ve come to love (and use) this in most of my recipes. 6. Add plenty of salt…. …and lots of fresh pepper. Mix well and set aside. 7. Cook the sausage on high heat, drain and set aside. 8. Add sausage on top of hash browns. 9. Is this enough cheese? Maybe? Probably. Throw the whole big bag in there. 10. Mix it up well. 11. Pour the egg mixture over everything in the crock pot. Using a wood spoon, even everything out so it’s spread evenly. 12. Turn the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours. Some fun variations of this recipe. Before cooking (during prep) you can add: chunks of sourdough bread diced, Chile’s, salsa, diced green onions, jalapenos (to the egg mixture)


  1. I have seen this recipe for casserole dish but this is great! Also have recipe for coffee cake type that cooks in a crock pot too. Love using mine for many things but this is a sure bet that I will try for hubby to take to work for events. Thanks!

  2. It looks delicious Linda. I am going to do this for Christmas morning. What a great breakfast to wake up too. Sam was very enthusiastic, so I know it must be good. Best wishes, Allan

  3. Hi Linda and Sam – Merry Christmas to you and your family!  What a great idea.  I may have to give this a try.  I also like your idea of adding the other ingredients – then it would look like one big omelette!  LOL.  Thanks for sharing this recipe with us and take care!

  4. Thank you for this. I was thinking today I wanted to do something in the crock pot for Christmas breakfast. I was wondering about the bacon lovers sausage. Who makes it and does it come in a regular one pound tube? I know my girls would love it. I love sausage and they prefer bacon, this could be a good compromise. Happy Holidays and thanks for the great recipe!
