Slow Cooker Cheesy Bacon Strata

Oh yeah baby. This is the answer to breakfast. Perfect for company!

One of my very favorite meals is breakfast. Okay, fine you caught me. I do like every meal, but there is something extra delish about breakfast. Which, by the way I'd gladly eat for lunch or dinner! Throw a good slow cooker recipe that's made for a crowd and I'm all in.  This is a sponsored post by Lunchbox about holiday recipes, all opinions are my own.

Matter of fact, I LOVE waking up on Christmas morning to a hot delicious breakfast that's ready to eat. That delicious scent of breakfast luring me out of bed knowing that an amazing day is just awaiting me? Someone get the coffee brewing, cuz' it's gift time! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I jumped a little too far in the future, but it's clear I'm excited.

I've made slow cooker breakfasts before but this was the first time I've done a Strata. Essentially that means it has bread in it. Toasted French bread cubes to be exact. It's SO good. This recipe among many others is from the Kraft recipe hub over at Walmart.com.

Are you ready to plan your future breakfast? This recipe is courtesy of Kraft and Walmart.

Foil is recommended as a liner in your slow cooker, I used a slow cooker liner instead and it worked awesome.

  2. ADD slow cooker liner and spray inside of slow cooker with cooking spray. Add egg mixture. If necessary, press toast cubes into egg mixture with back of spoon to completely moisten toast cubes.

Once it's done cooking, it's ready to go. How easy!? I just pulled out my liner and gently removed the strata. Instant hit and I'll be doing it all over again next week. Can't wait!

  1. This is probably a stupid question but how do you wake up to the strata when it only cooks for four hours? Do you get up for 4 hours before youโ€™re going to eat and start it?

    Thank you

  2. I too like the idea of waking up on Christmas morning with something delicious to eat. This strata looks perfect! I pinned it too.

  3. I am a huge slow cooker fan. And, let's face it? Who doesn't love cheese and bacon? I see this on my menu this season!

    1. Thanks! I hope you get a chance to cook this for your husband. Anyone with a taste for bacon should be pretty happy enjoying this dish. ๐Ÿ˜‰
