This is a perfect recipe for Christmas morning. Simply prepare the ingredients the night before, add the eggs right before you turn on the crock pot, and in the morning you’ll have a warm, perfect, flavorful breakfast that’s as bright and healthy as you are.
I love how versatile the recipe is. Simply add your favorite breakfast meats, your favorite hashed browns, and your favorite vegetables and cheeses. You can even swap out the heavy white cream for unsweetened almond or coconut milk if avoiding the dairy, or to cut carbohydrates (and fat) further.
