I put eggs in my crock pot for a breakfast casserole! Yep! I did that!
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
All of these items are Prime eligible.
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!
