Kim's notes for this recipe:
Make the night before when you have a house full of company staying the night. It'll be ready when you wake up in the morning. All you'll have to do when you get up is make some coffee.

This is a really flavorful breakfast. I think the addition of peppers and onions to the O'Brien potatoes makes it really good.

We all know potatoes + anything = wonderful!


Cook meat, drain and crumble. Set aside. Save a bit of the oil and add onion and peppers. Cook until onions are soft.
Spray 6 qt. slow cooker with non-stick spray or use liner for slow cooker.
Put in half the potatoes, meat and vegetables in the slow cooker. Sprinkle with half the cheese. Repeat.
Mix together eggs, milk, sour cream and seasonings. Pour this mixture over the top of ingredients in crock pot.
Cook on low for eight hours.
I make this for our family when we are up at the cabin for holiday weekends. It's nice to not have to prepare a huge breakfast in the morning. Just turn it on before you go to bed and it's ready when you wake up. Hope you enjoy!!

I've never seen this recipe done in a slow cooker.....I can't wait to try it! There is nothing better than waking up and NOT having to make breakfast after a long week :)

Just be careful that you don't cook it too long. The outside of it (that touches the crock) can burn if cooked over the eight hours.
