There’s a nip in the air and the holidays are right around the corner, so now is the best time to break out the Crock Pot and begin making some wonderful meals for the family. Cooking in the Crock Pot not only saves you time in the kitchen but it can also create fun family memories.
I am a night owl so when the boys were younger, I enjoyed staying up late to do chores and prepare meals for the following day. One of my favorite slow cooked meals was breakfast frittatas. It was great because the boys would help me shop for the ingredients then put them all into the Crock Pot. The only problem with this slow cooked breakfast is the aroma; the wonderful smell would always wake us up earlier then we had planned on rising. The boys couldn’t wait to rush downstairs to eat and then head back to bed for a few more hours of sleep.
Safeway is having a Stock Up sale on Pace Picante Sauces and Salsas so I headed over to pick up a few jars to make my Crock Pot Breakfast Frittata for last Sunday’s brunch. Pace Picante kicks up the flavor in this breakfast meal and with the 16 oz varieties being on sale at Safeway for 2/$4, it was the perfect time to stock up.
Family breakfast doesn’t have to be boring bowl of cereal and if you make this the night before it will free from the stove giving you more family fun time around the table. As you know, both of my sons are now in college and with time flying by so quickly, spending as much time with them is important especially during the holidays. Ingredients:
1 – 16 oz package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 Jar Pace Picante Sauce
8 eggs beaten
1 – 20 oz package cooked Hash browns
1 package pre-cooked sausage (links or patties diced or crumbled sausage)
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1/2 cup scallions diced
Spray the Crock Pot generously with cooking spray
Place spinach, hash browns, sausage, scallions, beaten eggs, and Picante Sauce into Crock Pot. Toss slightly to mix all ingredients then top with shredded cheese.
If cooking overnight use the 6 hour setting or cook 2-3 hours on high if preparing in the morning, check to ensure it is well set. Allow the breakfast frittata to cool slightly before cutting into equal square portions, serve with a breakfast biscuit or an English Muffin.
Note: You can freeze leftovers or reheat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.
During the Stock Up Sale at Safeway I also purchased a few other flavors that will be great for chicken Crock Pot meals especially the Peach Mango.
This Slow Cooked Breakfast Frittata is by far one of our favorite family holiday meals and a tradition that I hope my boys will continue with their own families.

This looks yummy!!! I have the hardest time sleeping when I smell food cooking, which is why I hardly use my slow cooker at night 🙂
