To start the ball rolling, I’m sharing a new version of one of the most popular recipes of 2015 on WhitneyBond.com, Greek Eggs Crockpot Breakfast Casserole. This time, I put a Mexican spin on the recipe, while still keeping it simple, gluten free and vegetarian.
I made this recipe on a Monday, then proceeded to eat it for breakfast all week. My boyfriend loves breakfast burritos, and who am I kidding, so do I, so a couple of mornings we heated up the Mexican Egg Casserole then wrapped it up in a tortilla with avocado, sour cream and hot sauce, it was seriously delicious!
If you’re making it for a brunch, you can mix everything up in the slow cooker the night before, place it in the refrigerator then put it on high first thing in the morning, and in a couple of hours you’ll have a delicious brunch dish to serve family and friends!
