I put eggs in my crock pot for a breakfast casserole! Yep! I did that!

8 Eggs
2 Sweet Potatoes
2 Red Onions
2 Tablespoons Smoked Paprika
1 lb Meat of your choice
Organic Coconut Oil (To grease the crock pot)

Crack eggs and place in a bowl. I like my eggs to rest after they escape the refrigerator and their shells.


Next I cut my sweet potatoes so they can be fed into the food processor. I love this Cuisinart Food Processor which you can find on Amazon.



Feed two red onions into the food processor and dump the sweet potatoes and onions into the crock pot.



Whisk eggs together and add the paprika. Mix the meat of your choice into the sweet potato and onion mixture, pour the eggs on top and mix all together.


Cook on low heat for 4-6 hours. This is a great dish I have made time after time. Its very easy to portion out your breakfasts for the week in Pyrex or other glass containers, refrigerate or freeze, and take to work all week instead of stopping at a fast food place or purchasing food in the company cafeteria. The best part of this recipe is that you can add more ingredients as your crock pot allows, just add an egg for every cup of veggies or ingredients you add to the volume of the recipe. Lately, when I make this if I want any left over I have to make two crock pots full, it’s that good!

Meat in the Paleo Breakfast Casserole

A word on the choice of meat- you can use raw or cooked, but if you use cooked, it may turn out a little overcooked. If you are worried about your meat not cooking thoroughly, saute it to a half-done state and then throw it in the slow cooker. Drain before hand. This will help the dish not be so “wet” at the bottom of the crock. Choice of meat is up to you- I like using chorizo for a spicy finish, but it is greasy!

A Paprika I REALLY Like

I use A LOT of paprika when I cook. I add it to everything! The link below is for a one pound bag of Certified Organic Paprika. It is so tasty! One of the best I have ever used. AND because I use it so often, I order it a lot. This one is Amazon Prime eligible. Amazon Prime has been a life saver at my house. I order all of my dry goods, toilet paper and other paper goods, diapers, wipes, and anything else I can get for a 20% off subscribe and save plus the free shipping. It has cut down my grocery bill tremendously!

Sorry! I get to gushing about Amazon and can’t stop. Back to the paleo breakfast casserole with sweet potatoes in the slow cooker!

Just note: grease your crock pot REALLY well! Coat every surface inside. I had some egg stuck to the inside and it took some serious scrubbing to get it out of there!

Additional Products I Used Making this Dish

My el cheapo food processor. I love this food processor/blender combo. I have had so many issues zapping my motors because I use them SO much. This one has lasted over a year. It might be pretty low end on the price, but it lasts!

    Make sure you grease liberally!!! I use coconut oil because of its molecular stability at high temperatures. You want to grease every inch of your crock pot!

    • says

      Yes, that is what I would do. Slice the potatoes with a very sharp knife one to two millimeters thick. You can also shread the potatoes with a grater or mandolin. I’ve made them both ways, and also using just a knife. Turns out delicious any way you do it!

      You can also get creative with the recipe and add a dash of cayenne pepper to give it a little kick, or some jalapeños or whatever pepper you like. It’s a really diverse recipe.

  2. Bethany says

    Can you explain the meat part more, please? Did you use ground meat? Do you add it in raw… or did you cook it in a skillet first? Do you mix it all in the crockpot, or a separate bowl w/ the onions/potato first? Thanks!

    • says

      I just throw it all in the crock pot raw! I might start the meat an hour before sometimes, but a time or two when I’ve done that, it has come out too done.

  3. Charlotte says

    What meat did you use? Did you use ground meat? Did you cut it up in pieces or put it in whole? It sounds like a delicious way to enjoy eggs instead of scrambling or frying them!

    • says

      I have used ground sausage, sausage links, bacon that has been partially cooked in a frying pan (just so it doesn’t cook up soggy in the crock pot,) there are so many variations! One note for the raw meat: place it in the bottom of the crock pot initially so it will cook more quickly.

    • says

      I let the meat cook with all the other ingredients. I’ve used all types of sausage. I wouldn’t recommend using bacon. It gets soggy mixed in with everything else.

  4. says

    Sweet potatoes in the mornings I will take it. And I get to cook it in the crockpot my poor crockpot needs to be replaced I cook in that thing so much.

    • says

      It’s my favorite! I’ve never calculated out the carbs per serving but if comparing it to using a white potato has to be a bit less!

    • says

      It’s a different mix of flavors. I love mixing it up and using chorizo for the sausage, or sometimes using regular sausage and throwing in some hot sauce or some cayenne pepper!

  5. says

    this looks like a really great breakfast idea. my husband is out on the road going to some of his test sites outdoors and i like to send him off with a really nice warm breakfast in winter

  6. says

    I love sweet potatoes, love eggs and love cooking with coconut oil! I don’t have a slow cooker though so perhaps I could bake it? I would have never thought of anything like this for breakfast but I’m excited to try it!

  7. says

    I’m not huge on eggs, but my brother has been eating the paleo way for a while now and really has enjoyed the results. I’ll definitely pass this along to him!

    • says

      I’m like you. I am not a fan of sweet potatoes. I’ve tried to like them but just not a fan. I have made breakfast casserole’s similar to this one and used potatoes rather than sweet potatoes and it tasted great.

  8. says

    Well this looks delicious! I love sweet potatoes and have been cooking with coconut oil for well over a year now. I am going to have to try this recipe out for my family. I think we would all enjoy this.
