Slow Cooker Easy Breakfast Casserole is the perfect breakfast recipe for the holidays, company or entertaining! Just a few ingredients for an easy delicious brunch!
When we have company stay over it seems like everyone is waking up and making their way to the kitchen at different times throughout the morning (or afternoon as is the case with my teenager!). That's why I love my Keurig Brewer for making a fresh cup of coffee for everyone and also why I love my slow cooker for making and keeping breakfast warm for hours! Leaves me free to sit and chat, work on other meals, go for a run or just relax! I've made this Slow Cooker Easy Breakfast Casserole too many times to count. It's simple, easy and always a hit.
It's a little different than many of my recipes since it does use a refrigerated dough, but I always think it's okay to use a few great shortcuts from time to time and, really, does anybody make more delicious crescent roll dough that Pillsbury?
With just a few ingredients and easy prep, you can have a warm, cheesy, delicious breakfast waiting for your guest or for your family on a holiday or any day! Great things to serve alongside this to make a complete brunch would be:
- coffee (obviously!)
- fruit salad
- a light salad
- bacon, because who could say no?!

Could you add hashbrowns to this recipe? For example, can you add it on top of the crescent dough then add the other ingredients?
I haven't tried it but that sounds delicious!
This sounds amazing, and I am so ready to try! Is there a reason why you opted for frozen spinach and not fresh?
It was delicious and will definitely make this again. We are going to try your Italian Chicken crockpot meal next!

You could also use fresh!
If I double or triple this does the cook time stay the same? Will it still fit in the 9 x 13 crock?
You would need to do each of them in a separate slow cooker as only one recipe will fit in the 9x13.
I have a couple of questions…… Can I substitute the sausage for bacon? Also, can I put the ingredients together the night before & bake the next morning in my electric crock pot 9x13 casserole baker (not sure of the proper name.)
Thank you in advance!
Hi Christy! Yes to all! Let me know how it turns out for you!
You mentioned that this could be made in the oven. At what temperature should it be and for how long?. Thanks! This looks like would be good and easy, too!
I can't remember how long I cooked it in the oven, but I would start by following the temp & time on the crescent roll package. Then check to be sure the crust is lightly browned and that when you stick a knife in the center of the eggs that they are set.

Can you tell me what the cresent roll looks like, please? Is it an already cooked type of bread? I' m i UK and I have no idea what an equivalent product would be over here. I would like to try the recipe when the family come over next weekend. Yhanks Jenny P
They are similar to refrigerated biscuits that are prepared dough in a can that you then bake. If you can't find them you could make a homemade croissant dough or a biscuit dough would work also.
I had no idea crock pot casserole cookers even existed! What a great recipe to use it for!
I know! I finally had to try it and I can't believe how well it works for so many recipes 🙂
