I am so excited to have partnered with McCormick to bring you this recipe.

I love using my slow cooker to prepare meals ahead of time, especially when I’m feeding a crowd!

With layers of hashbrowns, sausage and crisp fresh bell peppers, this Slow Cooker Breakfast is seasoned perfectly with taco seasoning (and of course a generous serving of cheddar cheese).

The evening before  I brown the meat and chop all of the vegetables. In the morning it’s as simple as layering everything in the slow cooker and turning it on.

While I have used sausage, peppers and onions as the main add ins in this slow cooker breakfast, you can add all of your favorites, like ham, corn, black beans, cooked mushrooms, tomatoes, or whatever else you might have in the fridge.

If you want to keep things a bit more simple, just use the seasoning and the eggs for a quick and easy dish that is loaded with tons of flavor!

I make this with shredded hashbrown potatoes but you can also use diced hashbrowns or even leftover roasted potatoes if you happen to have them on hand! If not, you can sub out the potatoes for cornbread or bread to create a strata style breakfast casserole!

Serve it with salsa, guacamole, sour cream and garnish with green onion or fresh parsley! Not only flavorful, but so beautiful!
