It’s snowing out. You’ve already decided you are going to hit first chair in the morning but you’re planning a family brunch together. A breakfast casserole in the slow cooker is just perfect for you! You can prep the ingredients the evening before and throw everything in the slow cooker just before you head to the gondola and a few hours later you have an amazing egg and cheese casserole, perfect for the family brunch!
This recipe is great because you can really throw in almost anything you’ve got on hand and it’s sure to be delicious. Substitute the sausage with chopped bacon, ham or chorizo sausage and add things at the end like a spicy green chili or salsa and sour cream for some great flavors! Avocado, tomatoes and green onions are great ‘toppers’ for this dish as well!
-6 eggs, beaten
-1 ½ lbs bulk sausage, browned and drained
-1 ½ cups milk
-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-8 slices bread, torn into pieces
-1 tsp salt
-1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
-1/2 cup chopped vegetables of your choice such as mushrooms, broccoli, onions, spinach and peppers (optional)
Mix together all ingredients except mozzarella cheese. Pour into greased slow cooker.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top.
Cover and cook 2 hours on high, then 1 hour on low.
Cut up some fruit, pour the coffee and breakfast is served! (Recipe was adapted from “Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook”.)

Early Morning Euphoria
River Run Village is the happening place in Keystone! While the area is best known for its shopping and fine dining, many people don’t realize that Keystone is an active village at most hours of the day, especially in the morning. Next time you are in Keystone try getting yourself a hearty breakfast at the Inxpot Cafe, instead of grabbing a granola bar and trying to hold out until lunch .
The Inxpot is located right next to Keystone Sports in Black Bear Lodge which is one of the River Run Condos (on your right as you head towards the lift). With plenty of seating and comfortable couches, as well as dining tables, the Ixpot is a great place to relax and enjoy a morning meal. While you’re there, try the Family Breakfast, which feeds four and, at only 20 bucks, it’s an incredible deal and it sure beats what you would get for a comparable price at McDonalds. The Inxpot is also less than 100 yards away from the lift, which makes it a perfect place to make a pit stop at before heading up for a long day of skiing or boarding.
Enjoy Inxpot’s enormous selection of Coffee from around the world with your breakfast as well. There are also a number of games available for you to play during your short wait for food to be ready and it definitely adds to the experience! The Inxpot also has a Wi-Fi and where you can send that last minute e-mail to work letting them know you are “sick” and may or may not be enjoying a powder day!! Whatever your reason for coming to Keystone, Inxpot has you covered for breakfast!
