m_Slow-Cooker Bacon, Smoked Cheddar and Egg Casserole

The classic breakfast trinity of bacon, egg and cheese gets a grown-up twist in this easy slow-cooker bake with the help of smoked cheddar, fresh mushrooms and crushed red pepper.



  1. •           10 cups cubed French or ciabatta bread (about 12 oz)
  2. •           2 tablespoons butter
  3. •           1 package (8 oz) sliced fresh mushrooms (about 3 cups)
  4. •           9 eggs
  5. •           2 cups (1 pint) half-and-half
  6. •           ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  7. •           2 cups shredded smoked Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
  8. •           1 lb thick-sliced bacon, cooked, drained and coarsely chopped
  9. •           1 green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  10. •           ¼ cup chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley





  1. Heat oven to 300°F. On large cookie sheet, spread bread cubes. Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until dry.
  2. Line sides of 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with foil that has been folded into thirds; spray with cooking spray.
  3. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter. Add mushrooms; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until tender.
