Happy healthy New Years! To start off the year, I’m sharing this delicious healthy slow cooker crockpot breakfast casserole recipe that is fantastic to make anytime friends are coming over, or for meal prep breakfasts!
Something I have always struggled with is having a healthy breakfast in the mornings. It usually takes too long to cook up something and so I end up eating whatever is around – sometimes not the healthiest.
What do your mornings look like? For me, it’s something bordering insanity, a race against the clock if you will. I wake up, get baby Ben fed/changed/etc., and then have to get out the door.
I’m trying to eat healthier, so I want to be mindful of what I’m starting my day off with.
After all, they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right?
The beauty of this recipe is that it uses al fresco chicken breakfast sausage which has 70% less fat than pork sausage and is gluten free! The al fresco chicken breakfast sausage is super flavorful, and really brings all the flavors of this breakfast casserole together.
One of the things I absolutely love about this healthy breakfast casserole is that it can be made in a variety of ways.
- It can be made as an overnight casserole – meaning you make it overnight and have it cook in the slow cooker while you sleep and then have it ready to enjoy in the morning
- The casserole can be assembled the night before, and then baked in the morning
- The casserole can be made into individual mini casseroles
This healthy breakfast casserole is fantastic for meal prepping. You make one casserole and then enjoy it all week long. I like to make this on a Sunday when I’m prepping for the week ahead.
Whichever way you make it, this slow cooker healthy breakfast casserole is packed with veggies and deliciousness, and makes for one delicious breakfast recipe.
