I am so pumped for this week on the blog.  Because it is officially Crocktoberfest! 

Yes, you read that right.  A week full of recipes all for your handy dandy crockpot.  Well, three recipes to be exact – breakfast, dinner and dessert.  And not just here on Cook Nourish Bliss, but on some other awesome blogs as well.  

So get your crockpot ready – it’s go time.

And first up?  Breakfast.  

This casserole is perfect for company – it makes a lot of food, is satisfying and of course delicious.  I will say that this definitely tastes best fresh, so save this for a time when you’ll have plenty of hungry people around.  

Thanksgiving or Christmas morning?  Yes and yes.

My favorite part about this breakfast is that you can quickly get everything ready and throw it in the crockpot.  

Either get up a little early and cook it on high for four hours or make it right before you go to bed and let it cook on low overnight (which is my personal favorite since then you wake up to an awesome breakfast that is ready to go).
