How To Make Crock Pot Breakfast Potatoes

These potatoes only take a few minutes of prep, and then the crock pot does all the work. You'll be in and out of the kitchen and back to the morning rush in no time.

  1.  Add all the ingredients to your crock pot.
  2. Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender.
  3. Add any other ingredients like cheese or cooked sausage or bacon and stir.
  4. Enjoy!

Tips

  • It's important to cut your vegetables into bite-size pieces so they cook fully within the specified time and are easy to eat.
  • Add your potatoes to a bowl of water as you prep them to keep them from turning brown.
  • Give your potatoes a gentle stir before serving to ensure everything is fully dispersed.

Hint

Cut the potatoes, pepper, and onions into bite-sized pieces for even cooking and easy eating.

Storage

Refrigerate these potatoes for up to 5 days in an air-tight container. For longer storage, freeze them for up to 3 months in an air-tight, freezer-safe container or heavy-duty freezer bag with as much air removed as possible.

To reheat the potatoes, defrost them overnight in the refrigerator. Then, place them in a medium saucepan with a little butter and cook over medium-low heat until heated through.
