This savory breakfast casserole is made like a strata. You add all the ingredients and let it meld overnight. The bread soaks and the sausage infuses it's flavor into the other ingredients. In the morning, you just place the slow cooker crock into the base and let it cook, creating a succulent dish perfect for a family or a crowd.
We used the Hamilton Beach® Professional Sous Vide & 6 Quart Slow Cooker for this recipe. The non-stick, rectangular insert closely resembles a standard casserole dish. So no transferring out of the crock before serving necessary.
This overnight breakfast casserole is the perfect dish to serve out-of-town guests or extended family over the holiday season. Just cook the casserole in your slow cooker, and serve directly from the crock - making cleanup a breeze. Serve it with a piping hot cup of coffee and some seasonal fruit for a perfect start to the morning.
