Hearty Crockpot Breakfast Bowls

Breakfast used to be just for mornings, but we all know there's just something special about breakfast for dinner! Try our Hearty Crockpot Breakfast Bowls for a satisfying meal no matter what time of day it is! Start off by rinsing some Smith's Cottage Cheese and letting it drain (yes, we know our curds are showing — but trust us)! Brown the sausage links and cook the green pepper strips, then slice and layer them in the slow cooker. Sprinkle in the Smith's Cottage Cheese, then top with the grated cheddar cheese, green onions, salt and pepper. Beat the eggs until combined, then pour everything in the crockpot. Cover and cook on low for two hours or until the eggs are firm in the center and the cheese is melted. Garnish with green onions and your Hearty Crockpot Breakfast Bowls are all set to serve. One bite and you'll be ready to rise and shine whether it's day or night!

How to Make


  • 1-1/2 cups Smith' cottage cheese, rinsed and drained
  • 24 oz (two 12-oz packages) breakfast sausage links
  • 3 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 green pepper, cut into thin strips (or diced)
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions + 2 TBSP more to sprinkle over at the end
  • 1 to 2 tsp salt and pepper
  • 14 eggs, beaten until yolks and whites are well combined


  1. Spray a slow cooker with non-stick spray or mist with olive oil. 
  2. Put Smith's cottage cheese into a fine mesh colander, place in the sink and rinse with cold water until the creamy part is rinsed away. Let Smith's cottage cheese drain while you cook the sausage and peppers.
  3. Heat 1 tsp olive oil over medium-high heat in a large frying pan and cook half the sausages until they’re well browned. Put sausage on a cutting board to cool.
  4. Heat another tsp of oil, cook the second half of the sausage, and transfer it to the cutting board. 
  5. Heat the final tsp of oil and brown the green pepper strips about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Cut the sausage into halves or fourths and layer them in the slow cooker with the green pepper strips. Sprinkle the drained Smith's cottage cheese and then the grated cheese over the sausages. Top with the sliced green onions and sprinkle with the salt and pepper.  
  7. Beat eggs until they’re well combined and then pour over the sausage, cottage cheese and cheese. 
  8. Put the lid on and cook on LOW for 2 hours, or slightly longer, until the eggs are firm in the center and the cheese is nicely melted.  
  9. Sprinkle with the rest of the sliced green onions and serve hot.
