Recipe: Western Egg Strata

Here's a good recipe for anyone who needs a new crock pot meal idea!

We modified the recipe a little. I don't care for ham, so we put in breakfast sausage instead and our kids don't really like onions and green peppers so we left them out.

Vegetable cooking spray
8 slices white sandwich bread, cut into cubes
3 cups frozen diced potatoes (hashbrowns)
1 pound ham steak, diced
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese (about 16 ounces)
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup
8 eggs
2 cups milk

Cooking instructions:
1. Spray the inside of a 4.5 to 5-quart slow cooker with the cooking spray. Layer half of the bread cubes, potatoes, ham, onion, pepper and cheese in the cooker. Repeat the layers.

2. Beat the soup, eggs, and milk together in a medium bowl. Pour over the bread mixture in the slow cooker. Press the bread mixture down to coat with soup/egg mixture.

3. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours or until set.

Makes 12 servings
