Healthy Overnight Breakfast Casserole

This Overnight Breakfast Casserole Is a Low-Carb Dream

Upon my first bite of this layered breakfast casserole, I knew I had met my slow-cooker match. Paleo-friendly, free of grains, and low in carbs, a slice of this hearty breakfast will energize you with its high protein content and keep you full until lunchtime rolls around.

Take 20 minutes for prep the night before, set your slow cooker to low while you sleep, and wake up to the smell of eggs and bacon cooking in the kitchen. While it's a delicious make-ahead breakfast you can enjoy all week, it also feels special enough to bring to a Fall brunch. Everyone will be asking for this recipe, so just be sure to leave some leftovers at home.
