Sharing A Recipe

Shannon over at Homeschool Trial Year asked about the Crockpot Breakfast I had in my weekly menu a couple weeks ago. So, albeit a bit late in coming (so sorry Shannon), here it is. This is a healthier version, so make whatever adjustments you may need to fit your diet and budget.

Crockpot Breakfast
1 (28 oz) bag Ore-Ida Frozen Potatoes O'Brien, slightly thawed
1/2 c. diced onion
1 lb. lean ham, diced
2 c. fat free shredded cheddar cheese
1 c. skim milk
3 c. egg substitute
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

-Spray crockpot with non-stick cooking spray.

-Place 1/3 of the potatoes in the bottom of the crockpot, followed by 1/3 of the onions, 1/3 of the ham, and 1/3 of the cheese.

-Repeat this step two more times (until you have 3 layers), ending with the layer of cheese.

-Beat together the egg substitute, milk, salt, and pepper.

-Pour mixture over the layers in the crockpot.

-Cover and cook on low for 9-10 hours overnight.

-Cut into 8 wedges when ready to serve.
