|Crockpot Italian Sausage and Egg Breakfast|
18 eggs beaten with 4 tablespoon milk or cream
1 to 1- 1/2 pounds cooked and crumbled Italian homemade sausage or store bought sausage,( you can also use prosciutto, capicola, pepperoni or a combination of them all, for meat lovers!)
2 1/2 cups shredded blends of Italian cheese (provolone, mozzarella, romano etc)
3 finely minced garlic cloves
4 pepperoncini Italian bottled peppers chopped or 1 green bell pepper, diced
grating cheese, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper to taste ( I just eye ball it!) spinkle around 1 teaspoon each
optional : 2 cups baby bella mushrooms (or you can add any other vegetable you like see for greens below)
If you would like to use greens such as spinach or escarole you will need to par boil them first and squeeze all the water out completely before adding.
Spray crock pot with cooking oil or line with plastic cooking liners ( you can buy them at any grocery stores). Starting with meats, layer meat, mushrooms, peppers, and cheese, or other vegetables, repeating the layering process until all ingredients are used and ending with a layer of cheese. Beat eggs with spices, pour over mixture in oil sprayed crock pot. Cover and cook on lowest setting for 7 to 8 hours at night before going to bed. Breakfast is served, don't forget some Italian bread toasted! Buon Appetito!
