Sunday Morning Routine

December 17, 2014

Sunday mornings are my favorite. After meeting a friend for a run, it is my day to relax. Since breakfasts in our house are often rushed during the work week, it is such a treat to have a hot and hearty breakfast while slowly sipping on my coffee.

I played around with the Cabot extra sharp cheddar cheese I received as part of being on the Cabot Cheese Board, wanting to incorporate it into a breakfast bake. What I came up with was a delicious combo of cheddar, eggs, smoked andouille chicken sausage, onions, and peppers!


Did I mention I made all this deliciousness in a crockpot!? I sure did!

Sausage and Cheddar Breakfast Bake


  • 1 cup or 2 small smoked andouille chicken sausages (I used Trader Joe’s brand)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I used Cabot extra sharp)
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


Spray a 6 quart slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Start by layering 1/2 of the sausage on the bottom of slow cooker. Top with half of the cheddar cheese, onions, red peppers, and repeat the layers.  Beat eggs, milk, and salt and pepper in large bowl with a wire whisk until well blended. Pour egg mixture evenly over mixture.  Cook on high setting for about 1 hour or until desired doneness.

This turned out SO good! It cooked up a lot faster than I anticipated which was even better! Next time I plan to add in potatoes to the mix.


We were able to reheat for the week. Tasted just as delicious as the day I made it! :)


Other Swanky Scoop:

I am the first to admit I get bored with workouts. I was excited when I discovered Surf Set, a surfing inspired workout.


I invited my friend to join and we had a great time! It kicked my butt and provided a lot of variety to my workouts.


What are some of your favorite outside-the-box workouts? What is your favorite additions to a breakfast bake?
