Slow Cooker Ham, Cheese, and Veggie Breakfast Casserole
This Slow Cooker Ham, Cheese, and Veggie Breakfast Casserole feeds a crowd, and all of the preparation can be done the night before, put in the fridge right in the slow cooker insert, and then started first thing in the morning. SO easy! Plus, you can change up the ingredients based on whatever you or your guests like! If you decide to cook it right after preparation, it’s ready in about 2 hours, or right out of the fridge in about 4 hours. What a great thing to have when you are busy getting the rest of your brunch menu ready!
I made this slow cooker ham, cheese, and veggie casserole with #BrunchWeek sponsors Cabot Cheese and sweet Vidalia Onion Committee onions. Read on after the recipe to check out all the other great #BrunchWeek recipes shared today and enter the giveaway!
- 16 large eggs
- 1 cup chopped vidalia onion
- 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
- 2 jalapenos, seeded and diced fine
- 8 ounces cubed honey ham steak
- 8 ounces shredded Cabot's extra sharp cheddar
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon butter (for greasing slow cooker insert)
Grease a slow cooker insert with butter. Crack the eggs into the insert, whisk until well combined. Stir in the cubed ham, onion, bell pepper, jalapenos, cheddar cheese, and milk. Cover and refrigerate overnight, if preparing ahead, otherwise place the insert in the slow cooker and turn to HIGH. Cook until the eggs are set, around 2 hours.
If prepared ahead, the next morning place the insert in the slow cooker, and set to HIGH. Cook until the eggs are set, beginning to check around 3 1/2 hours. Serve hot.
