Egg Brunch Casserole

This is a picture I took in my crock pot.  Notice the egg yolk?  I apparently didn’t whisk my eggs enough and this came out on top!  I decided to keep it like that and see if it cooks through! It’s smells delicious!!

I thought today would be a good day to have a ‘breakfast’ dinner.  I found an easy recipe for an egg bake in the crock pot!  I threw it together this morning and forgot about it, besides smelling the scrumptious aroma filling the house!  My mouth is watering and I’m not sure I can wait until dinner to dive in!  But I must, since it needs to cook thoroughly!  I bought a honeydew, which I will cut up and we will have bagels with it too.  I enjoy having a ‘breakfast’ dinner once in a while!  Here’s the recipe:

12 eggs
8 bacon, strips
1 small onions, chopped
1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
32 oz hash browns, frozen
1 1/2 cups cheese, shredded
1 cup milk
1 tsp dill weed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Notes / Directions
