20-ounce bag frozen, shredded hash browns (I used Trader Joe’s)
8 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and coarsely chopped
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
6 green onions, sliced thin
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Cooking oil (to lightly coat slow cooker)
Optional toppings: Fresh salsa, hot sauce & avocado
Lightly grease your slow cooker with cooking oil. Layer half of the hash browns into the bottom and top with half the bacon, half the cheese, and one-third of the green onions. Set aside some bacon and green onion for garnish and then repeat with a second layer of hash brown, bacon, cheese, and onion.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper and slowly pour over top. Cook until eggs are set, approximately 2-3 hours on high, or 4-5 hours on low. Sprinkle remaining bacon and onions on top and serve immediately, with or without hot sauce.
