    I would like to try this recipe but without the meat. It sounds great.

    I tried this, was yummy, but I tried cooking for 4 hours on hi instead of 8 on low. It was
    burnt a bit on sides and bottom . Maybe I cooked it too long on Hi and maybe I should
    have just sprayed the bottom, not sure. I think I’ll add more sausage, I used already cooked jimmy dean sausage, and maybe less corn tortilla next time. Does anybody know how many hours on Hi it can be? I have a new Hamilton Beach crockpot.
    thanks,
    Sue

    As I have a family member that cannot eat any red meat product, I substituted a chicken feta spinach sausage made by a local butcher, as there is also less preservatives, and that is a problem too.

    I do think that crock pots vary in heat, and my recipe was really done at about 7 1/2 hours, not 8 hours.

    Overall, the recipe was right on, no burnt sides, like I heard in a complaint, just all of us having to adjust it to our crock pot heat and family needs. I can see many variations to this recipe, and as I try them, I will share.

    I will make it again, cut cooking time about 1/2 hour and also add some of my fresh herbs from my container garden. We are into organic container gardening, and I did use a red pepper today from it.

    This was a huge disappointment. When putting it together we thought this recipe had the makings of delicious breakfast. We had family over during the Christmas holidays and made this for the morning when they were leaving. No one ate more than 3 bites.

    This was AMAZING! I used my Hamilton Beach oval crock and with a couple of changes this breakfast turned out perfectly for Christmas morning!

    I omitted the tomatoes and chili’s and just added one small can of diced chilies, 1/2 white onion chopped, and a round package of hot breakfast sausage – also omitting the corn tortillas.

    I layered the bottom with one flour tortilla broken up, added half of the sausage broken up, half the egg mixture, about a cup of cheese, then added the rest of the egg mixture without the extra cheese. I did use a lot of pepper and a bit of salt for flavor. Programmed my crock to cook on low for 8 hours. When I woke up this morning I gave it a quick stir, added a cup of cheese to the top and a bit more salt and pepper and covered and set on warm for another hour. We scooped it into warmed flour tortillas.

    DELICIOUS! Thank you for the great recipe!

    So upset! We woke up Christmas morning to a burnt mess! No breakfast and a ton of wasted ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly! :(

    Laura,
    You can use white or yellow onion. I usually have the Texas 1015 onions on hand. Then you will also add the 6 green onions.

  10. Laura

    Quick question: is the 1/2 onion a white onion plus 6 green onions?

    Bethany.. I think I would like it better with flour tortillas!!!I use them for everything!!

  12. Bethany

    Have you made this with flour tortillas? I accidentally grabbed the wrong kind!

  13. Kerri S.

    Love the video! Especially Gracie! She was waiting for the moment to do the tortilla’s her way! :) & then the sugar! Too cute, all of them! You all have patience of saints! Can’t wait to try both!
