  • 1
    Line sides of 5-quart oval slow cooker with foil that has been folded into thirds; spray with cooking spray.

  • 3
    Layer half each of the potatoes, sausage, roasted peppers, remaining green onions and cheese in slow cooker. Repeat layers. Pour egg mixture over layers.
  • 4
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 4 to 4 1/2 hours or until temperature reaches 160°F in center and egg mixture is set.
  • 5
    Turn slow cooker off. Sprinkle reserved cheese and green onions over top of casserole. Cover 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove foil before serving by loosening edges with table knife and pulling out.

Expert Tips

  • One pound of bulk turkey breakfast sausage, cooked and drained, can be substituted for the package of cooked crumbles.
  • Slow cookers vary. Keep an eye on your casserole so it doesn't become overdone. The foil will help keep it from browning too quickly.
