  • 1
    Spray 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat eggs, half-and-half, Dijon mustard, salt, thyme and pepper with whisk. In slow cooker, mix hash browns, sausage, bell pepper, green onion whites, 1 1/2 cups of the cheese and egg mixture; stir to combine. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 2 hours; carefully remove slow cooker's ceramic insert, and rotate insert 180 degrees. Cook 1 1/2 to 2 hours longer or until temperature reaches 160°F in center and egg mixture is set.
  • 3
    Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese and green onion greens over top; let stand uncovered 10 minutes. Serve topped with chopped apple.

Expert Tips

  • Cooked chicken apple sausage links can be substituted in this recipe for the patties. Just slice or chop into bite-size pieces.
  • Rotating the ceramic insert halfway through cooking will result in evenly cooked eggs.
  • A fully cooked (160°F in center) casserole may still have some moisture present on the surface, which will absorb as it rests.
