Overnight Crock-Pot Breakfast Casserole (Adapted from this recipe from The Spruce):
1 lb. frozen hash-browns or tater tots
½ lb. chopped bacon or country ham
2 chopped onions
2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, Colby jack, or similar)
½ cup milk
1 tablespoons flour
Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions: Layer ⅓ of the hash-browns/ tater tots, then ⅓ of the bacon or ham, then ⅓ of your chopped onions and ⅓ of your cheese into your Crock-Pot. Continue to layer the ingredients two times, ending with cheese as the top layer. Next, add your eggs, milk, and flour in a mixing bowl and whisk until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste, then pour your egg mixture over the layers in your Crock-Pot. Cover and cook on low for approximately 6-8 hours (depending on your Crock-Pot. Be sure to check it at five hours if you have an extra strong Crock-Pot!). Serve with hot sauce (optional).
