Crock Pot Breakfast

~Day 5~

No big plans were made for today, but I knew I did not want to spend a lot of time fixing breakfast. So I threw this together the night before and set it to cook. I probably wouldn't fix it again for myself (I don't care for sausage), but the hubs liked it. Maybe next attempt will have bacon instead of sausage...what is your preference?
