Overnight Breakfast Frittata


1 bag 26 oz. frozen hash browns
12 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon ground mustard
1 16 oz. roll sausage
(Any flavor of sausage will do but I really prefer maple sausage)
Salt and pepper to taste
16 oz. shredded cheddar cheese


Spray crock pot with non-stick spray and evenly spread hash browns at the bottom.
Crack 12 eggs in a large bowl. 
Mix well (and slowly) using a whisk.
Add the milk.
Sprinkle in the ground mustard.
Add salt & pepper. Mix well and set aside. (If you have a pepper grinder use fresh ground pepper. Much more flavorful). 
Cook the sausage on medium- high heat, drain and set aside.
Add sausage on top of hash browns.
Add the cheese & mix well.
Pour the egg mixture over everything in the crock pot. Using a wood spoon, even everything out so it's spread evenly.
Turn the crock pot on low for 8 hours. Now go wash your face, brush your teeth and get in bed. Go ahead and close your eyes, and fall asleep. Because when you wake up and walk into the kitchen, you'll see this...

Oh, my.

What do we have here?

A perfect recipe that reminds you that the day is worth living, that's what.

Some fun variations of this recipe include making it vegetarian by eliminating the sausage and adding the veggies of your choice. Peppers, onions and chives work really well. My personal favorite is asparagus and green onion. Yum Yum!
