Slow Cooker Low-Carb Breakfast Casserole

This delicious meal is pretty easy to make. Just prep it right before you go to bed, and wake up to the smell of a yummy, low-carb breakfast.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 package frozen peppers and onions
  • 12 large eggs
  • butter
  • salt
  • pepper
  • spices to taste

Directions

  1. Grease the sides and bottom of the slow cooker with butter.
  2. Brown the sausage.
  3. Layer half of each of the sausage, yogurt, peppers/onions, and cheese (in that order). Repeat with another layer of each, but keep a little bit of the cheese aside for later.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with salt, pepper, and spices to taste (see notes).
  5. Pour the egg and spice mixture evenly over the ingredients in the slow cooker.
  6. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over everything.
  7. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Nutrition Information

This makes 6-12 servings, depending on how hungry you are 🙂 If you go with 8 servings, depending on which spices you use, each serving have about 5-6 carbs. I used the Spark People recipe calculator to determine that figure.

Notes

  • The first time I made this I used chili powder, cumin, and oregano for my spices, and it was very yummy. It would probably also be good with oregano, basil, and rosemary.
  • Bacon! Everything is better with bacon! And I bet this is no exception. Next time I will add a couple of layers of bacon. Ham might be another good addition.
  • You could probably lower the carb count a bit by taking out the Greek yogurt, but it adds a nice flavor.

    Just found Crock Pot Girls, and they have a similar recipe on their site, but with green chiles and no Greek yogurt. It looks like it would be pretty low carb, so I might have to try it.
