Crock pot Egg Bake

My family loves breakfast food.  This is a super easy recipe that you can throw in the crock pot before you head to work.  
  • 1 bag 26 oz. frozen hash browns
    • Could use real potatoes too
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1 16 oz. roll sausage
    • I've used the maple sausage, and I really liked. This time I just used regular.
  • Salt and pepper
  • 16 oz. bag shredded cheddar cheese.

Spray crock pot with pam.  Add hasbrowns.  Cook sausage.  Put eggs in a large bowl and whisk. Add milk, dry mustard, salt and pepper and whisk.  Put cooked/drained sausage over hashbrowns.  Then dump on eggs, then cheese. Stir all together and cook 6 hours in crock pot!
