Caprese Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

If you love classic caprese salad ingredients – basil, tomato and mozzarella – why not try them for breakfast?

We make it hearty with turkey, eggs and hashbrowns. The easiest part? You can prepare it the night before and serve it hot for a stress-free morning.

You’ll fill up, while enjoying a casserole with nutrition to spare. Tomatoes are packed with vitamin C, potassium and lycopene. Also, expect a lot of healthy fiber in the added spinach. The classic salad staple also contains vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, calcium and plenty more. It is also known to help with eye health and assist in preventing cancer.
