Tasty Tuesday- Healthy Crockpot Breakfast Casserole

This past weekend I had a girls get together to do Jamberry. A lot of my friends were commenting on my nails so I decided to have a party and show them how to use Jamberry. I made the party theme: Nails and Mimosas! If you are at all interested I have a party open now http://ericabass.jamberrynails.net/party/?uid=12e23608-29e9-462c-8913-1fc1e76fd584

I needed something easy and quick to make since my son has baseball at 8am on SAturday mornings which means I wouldn’t get home till about 10ish and my friends would start showing up at 11:00am for the party. As everyone knows I LOVE my crockpot and I figured I had never tried using it for breakfast (I put the bacon on the side since some of my friends don’t eat any meat) and thanks to Pinterest I found this:

  • 8 eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 tsp stone ground mustard
  • ½ tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 30 oz bag frozen hash browns
  • optional: 4 strips cooked bacon
  • ½ onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 bell peppers, roughly chopped
  • 1 small head of broccoli, roughly chopped
  • 6 oz cheddar cheese
  1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the whole eggs, egg whites, milk, mustard, garlic salt, and salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Lightly grease the bottom of your crockpot. Place half the hash browns on the bottom. Layer with half the bacon, chopped onion, bell peppers, broccoli, and cheese. Add on the last half of the hash browns, then top with the rest of the veggies, bacon, and cheese. Pour all of the egg mixture on top.
  3. Cover and cook for 4 hours on low. Serve hot!
*Make sure to properly season your casserole! If you don’t have garlic salt, replace it with salt and add in garlic powder or any other seasonings you love.

*The texture of this will be more spongy. If you prefer more texture to your bake, try using frozen diced potatoes instead.

So Halloween is coming up this Friday so I figured might as well talk about some FUN Halloween stuff we have been doing. Halloween is by far one of my favorite Holidays. It is nice and simple and lots of fun. I try really hard to do something Halloween every week with Landen but this year has been insane. I had two Weddings to go to this month, Landen has baseball games, and I am training to do the full in January. Sometimes there is NOT enough hours in the day. So sadly we didn’t go to as many events as we have in years past but we got to do some fun stuff.

Jamberry Nails

So I am NOT usually a fan of those in house sale items that people try to sell. I only have so much money a month and NO I don’t want to buy a $50 Tupperware that will do 20 different things for you. BUT I have found the exception to the rule. I am in LOVE with Jamberry Nails. At first I would get annoyed because I would be invited to 5 different Jamberry Parties ONLINE. To me I am a person who wants to be shown how to use the product. I felt like it would be to hard and wouldn’t turn out cute. I ended up trying out Jamberry Nails while on a girls trip up to Utah and now I am hooked. I am even (don’t judge) hosting an in house Jambery Nails party- Mimosa and Nails – in November. I have had so many people out and about LOVE my nails. SO for Halloween I had to do a HALLOWEEN SET! YEs they have holiday sets and YES I will so rock one for every holiday.

So there you have it I am rocking Mummy nails! I have had them last for two weeks before and so far I feel like this set is already holding up better. They don’t chip and are amazing. If you know me and want to come to the Jamberry Nail Party in November let me know. If anything you will get Mimosas!

Truck or Treat

Mel’s school had a great Trunk or Treat last Friday. I use to LOVE going to my old Mom’s group Trunk or Treat so it was nice to go to another one. The kids had a lot of fun and it was a great way to have them wear their costumes.

As you can see with have and Elsa and a Spider. Landen and I are actually Little Miss Muffet and the Spider. It was so cute as we were driving he told me the whole Little Miss Muffet Nursery Rhyme. He was super excited to see other kids dressed as Minecraft. I think the older kids at his school plays it in the afterschool program because now he is wanting to play it.

Painting Pumpkins

I love pumpkins and I love how good people can carve pumpkins but carving pumpkins is NOT for me! So instead I had the kids paint pumpkins. It was super easy! We jsut drew whatever they wanted and then they painted it. We ended up going back and adding black lines to bring some shape to the picture. Landen picked to do an angry bird. I am actually super surprised on how well it turned out. Melanie ended up doing THE PACKERS. Which if anyone knows me I am DA BEARS fan. SO I had her dad help here as it would be sac-religions for me to draw or paint anything green and yellow.

I forgot to take a photo of the Green Bay pumpkin. I really forgot! We were trying to do a lot of house work this weekend and I got side tracked!

I am going to try to do little Halloween things all week to try to make up for all the missed FUN times we missed becuase of being so busy. On Halloween we are having a party with the kids and friends. I still need to find a FUN treats to make on Halloween. I try to make something new every year. I will say the best kids Halloween dinner is Mac and Worms. It is super easy to make and the kids love it! I just make it with Mac and Cheese and then Hotdogs but here is an actual recipe I found online:

Worms and Macaroni


Bugs, Worms, & Macaroni

12 Servings

1 pound corkscrew pasta, which seems to be the scariest, or substitute large elbow macaroni or penne

1 pound pasteurized process cheese spread, cut into 1″ cubes
1 12 oz. can evaporated milk
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco pepper sauce

1 14 oz. can pitted black olives, drained and cut in half lengthwise, or substitute whole pimento stuffed olives or a mixture of both
1 12 oz. package hotdogs, each cut into 8 lengthwise strips

    1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add a tablespoon of salt and the pasta.
    1. Prepare the sauce while the pasta is cooking.
    1. Place the processed cheese spread and evaporated milk in a large microwaveable bowl; microwave 3 minutes.
    1. Remove the mixture from the microwave and stir; microwave 1-3 additional minutes, stirring every minute, until the cheese is melted and the mixture is smooth.
    1. Stir in the grated cheese and Tabasco pepper sauce.
    1. When the pasta is cooked al dente, drain it well in a colander and mix with the hot cheese sauce and olives; keep warm.
    1. Place the hotdog strips in a single layer on a paper towel lined plate, cover with another paper towel.
    1. Microwave 2-3 minutes or until the pieces are hot and begin to curl.
  1. Stir the hot dog pieces into the pasta mixture and serve.
