Minerva Dairy Farmers Slow Cooker Breakfast Recipe
Prep Time:60 minutes
Servings:4-6 servings
  • 1/2 bag of frozen hash browns
  • 8 fresh eggs
  • 1 lb. whole-hog breakfast sausage, browned
  • 1 bunch of green onions, sliced
  • 1 lb. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 lb. Minerva Dairy Farmer's Cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 lb. Minerva Dairy Raw Milk Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 lb. Minerva Dairy Smoked Gouda, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons Minerva Dairy Garlic Herb Butter
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt (sour cream can be substituted)
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
  1. In a large bowl, mix the softened cream cheese, green onion, 3/4 of the shredded cheeses (reserve 1/4 of it for topping), dried mustard, sea salt, black pepper and the frozen hash browns. 
  2. Set your slow cooker to 185 degrees and melt the garlic herb butter. Place the hash brown/cheese mixture into the bottom of the slow cooker and add the browned sausage.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and Greek yogurt together well. Pour over the sausage and shake the slow cooker a little to make sure the egg mixture combines well. Top with remaining cheeses and cook on 185 degrees for 8 hours. Serve and enjoy!
