    I too would like to know if anyone made this without eggs. My son is allergic to eggs and misses out on some good breakfasts because of it. I would love him to try something like this.

  2. Lacey

    When you say sausage in this recipe, do you mean like Jimmy Dean sausage links or can I use a package of Italian sweet sausage that you find in the meat department? I don want to ruin it by using the wrong things.

  3. Brittany

    I made this last night, just got done eating….so good! I put tabasco sauce all over it to give it a kick!

    Of course, Kelli. Make it your own, girl!

    Can you make this recipe without the Peppers and mushrooms, and it still be good? Our family has a variety of taste so I am trying to make everyone happy. :)

    this is probably a dumb question, but I don’t usually cook with sausage. Do you get the kind ground up like hamburger or patties, links? Not sure what is best to use. I love your site and have tried tons of recipes from here all have been wonderful. I crock probably 3-5 times a week. My kids think that is the only way I know how to cook :) I can cook, but don’t like to :( so the crock is perfect for me. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes :)

  9. Hope

    I am a new member. Love your recipes. I use my crockpot all the time. I purchased your book on QVC. I am a big QVC shopper and a cookbook collector. In The Kitchen With David is my favorite show. That is where I seen your book. I will be looking for new recipes on your website.
    Good Luck to you girls!!!

  10. Jessica

    I only have a 4qt crock. How/Would I need to change the ingredient amounts to make it work?

  11. Jennifer E.

    I used the potatoes that already have peppers in them which saved me a step. Love putting this on low before I go to sleep on Christmas Eve so there is a nice hot breakfast ready after we open gifts!

    Daria, I haven’t cooked with chorizo…sorry, girl :/

  13. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Loreta, if you cut this recipe in half you should be good to go. You probably won’t have crock it in a cooker larger than 4qt. Happy Crockin’!

  14. daria

    Hello
    Im a full work women with 3 yr old and husbund that want breakfast a dinner
    Question
    Do you ever try “chorizo with egg”

  15. Loreta S.

    Is there anyway I could halve this recipe. Want to make it but for 4 people only. Sounds great

  16. Vicki

    This turned out great! I made it late night on a camping trip and brought it out on a pontoon boat for breakfast the next morning. It was so fun. We had 6 adults & 5 kids and we went out on the boat for breakfast. There was plenty for all of us and even most of the kids enjoyed it. It was great with some hot sauce on my own individual serving.

    Yes Krista…you can do it that way or your can just dump the whole bag of hash browns on the bottom and then start your layers after that. Just depends on if you think y’all would like bits of potatoes throughout the casserole or one big layer on the bottom. It’s up to you girl!

  22. Krista

    If you have to do three layers, do you split the 32 oz bag of hasbrowns and the pound of cookes sausage, along with the other ingredients throughout the whole thing?

    I am so sorry to hear that, David! Not all crocks cook the same…that’s for sure! We did a little “test kitchen” with several of our crocks and that brand cooked a lot hotter for us as well. Here is a list of our favorite slow cookers. The GE and the KitchenAid cooked the best for us and didn’t burn or dry out our food. Here’s a link to them!

    I was looking for the receipe of the Breakfast Casserole you showed on the 700 Club on Thursday. It had bacon in it not sausage that is in another of your breakfast casserole has. I could not find it.

  27. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    It’s the 32 oz bag of hashbrowns…

  28. What size package of hash browns should be used?
    Thank you!

  29. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    16 eggs, Kathy…

  30. Kathy D.

    Kathy D.

    How many eggs would I use if I didn’t want to use the egg beaters?

  31. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Penny, Yes you can. Make sure you whisk them up before you put them in.

  32. Penny

    Can I use eggs instead of egg substitute?

  33. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Sorry, Barb. It’s an egg casserole. If you leave the eggs or egg substitute out it will completely change the recipe. The egg is what holds it all together! Sorry :-/

  34. Barb

    Barb

    Can you leave out the eggs? Would it come out the same way?

  35. Katie

    Question, are you supposed to layer all ingredients?Or just to the egg beaters?

  36. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Just depends on the size of your crock, Anna. As long as your crock is 2/3 full, it should be fine. Welcome to the crockin’ family :)

  37. Anna

    I’m new to crocking. Can I half this recipe and it still work correctly?

  38. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Erinn, You should be fine cooking it on low for 8 hours. You can compare this recipe with our other Breakfast Casserole recipe: http://crockingirls.com/recipes/crockin-mondays/breakfast-casserole-and-corn-chowder.html
    Happy Crockin’!

  39. Erinn M.

    If my crock pot only has low and high settings, can I make this recipe and let it cook on low overnight?

  40. Jennifer C.

    Generally speaking, 8 eggs = 1 pint carton egg substitute. So a quart would be 16 eggs worth.

  41. Lindsay S.

    How many eggs do you use if you don’t want to use egg beaters?
