EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

For a make-ahead tip, you can cook the sausage, shred the cheese, chop the vegetables, and line your slow cooker with foil. Refrigerate ingredients until used.

Slow cookers vary. An oval slow cooker works well for this recipe. Keep an eye on your slow cooker breakfast so it doesn't get overdone. The foil will help it from browning too quickly.
