Recipe: Crockpot Spinach Egg Strata

by Jenn @ Frugal Upstate on December 13, 2012

Eggs are a high quality, inexpensive protein source.  I like to incorporate them into my meal plans on a fairly regular basis–but sometimes it is hard to find recipes that aren’t “breakfasty”.  This Spinach Egg Strata (for the slow cooker) fits the bill.  Although egg-y and cheese-y the bread makes it more reminiscent of a stuffing than an omelet.

  Please note–this is one of those “cook 3 hrs” recipes–so it isn’t a toss it in the morning and leave it all day recipe.
