Are you tired of the same old breakfast options every morning? Look no further than this delicious and easy Crock Pot Egg Scramble! Perfect for meal prepping or feeding a crowd, this recipe is sure to become a staple in your breakfast rotation.
I recently discovered the beauty of making egg scramble in a crock pot, and I have to say, I'm hooked. It all started when I was looking for an easy and convenient breakfast option for busy weekday mornings. I came across a recipe for a crock pot egg scramble and decided to give it a try. The recipe I found called for onions, peppers, cheese, eggs, and milk. I followed the instructions, whisking the eggs and milk together and then adding in the bacon, onions, and peppers. I sprinkled shredded cheese over the top and set the slow cooker to cook on low for 4 hours.
The taste was incredible. The eggs were perfectly cooked, tender, and flavorful, and the combination of bacon, peppers, and cheese added a delicious savory dimension. The best part was that there was plenty left over, which I was able to store in the refrigerator and reheat throughout the week for a quick and easy breakfast.
Since then, I've made crock pot egg scramble several times, experimenting with different combinations of vegetables and spices. It's become a staple in my breakfast repertoire, and I highly recommend giving it a try if you're looking for a simple and delicious breakfast option.

Tips for making the perfect crock pot egg scramble:
Use a non-stick cooking spray or line the slow cooker with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
Whisk the eggs and milk together thoroughly to ensure they're well combined.
Don't overcook the eggs; they should be cooked until they're set, but not dry or rubbery.
Add the vegetables and cheese evenly throughout the mixture to ensure each bite has a good distribution of ingredients.
How to make it vegetarian/vegan-friendly:
For a vegetarian version, simply omit the bacon or other meat-based ingredients.
To make a vegan-friendly version, substitute the eggs with a tofu scramble or other plant-based egg alternative.
Use plant-based milk such as almond milk or coconut milk in place of regular milk, and omit the cheese or use a dairy-free cheese alternative.
How to make it ahead for meal prep:
- Allow the egg to scramble to cool to room temperature before transferring it to an airtight container.
- Store the egg scramble in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
- To reheat, simply microwave a portion for 30-60 seconds, or until heated through. Alternatively, you can reheat it in a skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
- Portion the egg scrambles into individual containers for easy grab-and-go breakfasts throughout the week.
