Erickson: Slow cooker perfect for weekend brunch

Seriously, is there anything your slow cooker can’t do? Baking eggs in your slow cooker is a huge help when you have family staying over for the holidays or are hosting a brunch and need extra space.

When the weekend rolls around, we’re a brunch bunch in our family. Just say the word, and it translates to “relaxing.” Brunch isn’t too early, so we have time to read the paper and do a run, and not too late so the day is taken away. Best of all, it’s an occasion for good food and connecting with friends and family.

For a main dish, here’s a slow cooker brunch egg casserole you can serve without having to think too much about the details, and you won’t be heating up your oven on a hot day.

Assemble the ingredients early in the morning, or the night before and refrigerate, turn the slow cooker switch to high for about three hours, and it’s ready to serve as is, or with your favorite toppings.

Like classic baked egg dishes, this recipe uses the basics — eggs, milk and cheese. But instead of adding bread cubes, this combo is layered with shredded hash brown potatoes.
