Crock-Pot Sausage Hash Brown Casserole
Casseroles in a crock-pot are a great item to bring to a family function, potluck or work lunch. They are also great when you want to make something, but you would like it to cook slowly while you either cook other items on the stove or you get to relax and read a book (or clean the bathroom or take a longer nap!)
This dish is a 5 ingredient easy breakfast casserole to make. There is a little prep work of browning the hash browns prior to cooking, but remember, this can be done the night before so you are not rushed in the morning. You can prepare the entire casserole, store it in the refrigerator overnight and then cook in the morning.
I prefer to cook my hash browns in bacon grease. I keep a little jar in the fridge. This time however I used the sausage drippings (not all , just some of it) and browned my hash browns that way. I think it adds a little bit more flavor. But feel free to use butter if you would rather.
Once you have everything ready, dump it in the crock-pot and turn it on.
Make sure that when it is done, a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean. Then serve!
