Eggs have always been one of my favorite ways to fuel my body for the day ahead — they’re loaded with protein to keep us going and easy to prepare.

This Crockpot Breakfast Casserole makes mornings even easier (although I wouldn’t leave it cooking overnight — it might not be that appetizing by morning!). It cooks in just a few hours and leftovers make fantastic breakfasts throughout the week!

You can mix things up and add in different meats (or skip the meat completely, as there’s already a ton of protein in the eggs!), veggies and cheeses to suit your family’s tastes.wake up to yellow event winnipeg

Last week we had the opportunity to join the Egg Farmers of Canada and some of our local egg farmers at the Wake Up To Yellow event in downtown Winnipeg, where passers-by enjoyed a free breakfast sandwich and took home some sunny kitchen utensils or a beautiful potted plant.

It was such a fun — and nutritious! — way to start the day, and I loved seeing the smiles brought to so many faces. We talked to farmers from Niverville, Landmark, and just outside of Winnipeg and it was easy to see how much passion they have for what they do! There were even a few junior farmers hanging around, encouraging people to stop by on their way to work and grab some breakfast 🙂

Even though I live in a rural, agricultural area (a little ways outside of Winnipeg), it’s not that often that I get to talk with our egg farmers. It was interesting to learn that all of the eggs consumed in Manitoba are produced in Manitoba!

I also learned that you can tell the colour of egg the hen will lay by the colour of the hen! (And p.s., there is no difference between white or brown eggs provided they’ve been fed the same diet).

We had a blast hanging out and learning from our farmers, and — of course — indulging in good hearty breakfast featuring local eggs! If you’re looking for more healthy recipes to start your day, check these out:

How to make this Crockpot Breakfast Casserole:

  • Know your slow cooker: some cook hotter and some are colder. The smaller the crockpot, the more efficiently it will heat. Since I use a 2.5 quart mostly, this recipe cooks fairly quickly. It will vary somewhat depending on your make and model.
  • Make it your own: Instead of breakfast sausage, you can add in ham, cooked bacon, or extra veggies for a vegetarian option.
  • Leftovers? Leftovers keep extremely well in the fridge or in the freezer. You can wrap and freeze individual portions for an easy breakfast option during the week!
