My slow cooker is by far my favorite kitchen appliance. Making this Paleo and Whole30 slow cooker egg bake with bacon, egg and hash brown on the counter on my meal prep day leaves my oven free for roasting veggies, making a sheet pan meal, or any other thing my slow cooker can’t do. Appliance multitasking is one of my favorite meal prep tricks, and this slow cooker egg bake is a perfect example!
Cooking your Whole30 slow cooker egg bake is as easy as dumping ingredients into the crockpot. It frees your oven up, and also ensures you’re not peaking in on the egg bake every 5 minutes to make sure you don’t over cook it. I swear, a few extra minutes in the oven and suddenly your Whole30 egg bake is dried out and and half of it is stuck to the bottom of the baking dish.
This tasty Paleo slow cooker egg bake might not come out of the crock pot in nice slices, and it’s more like a casserole, but the eggs are creamy, veggies are perfectly cooked and you didn’t have to do any work!
It’s totally Whole30 compliant, but, if you’re making this for yourself or someone who doesn’t eat Paleo or Whole30, feel free to sprinkle some cheese over the top, or even over half of it! I do that for my boyfriend every once in a while, and it just goes to show you how easy it can be to please a variety of eaters by making slight adjustments!
Speaking of adjustments, you can add other veggies to this such as broccoli or spinach. Or, instead of bacon, switch it up by using sugar-free, Paleo and Whole30 ground sausage or kielbasa! Make sure you cook it prior to putting it into the slow cooker still though, if you’re using ground sausage.
If you’re going to try this Whole30 slow cooker egg bake overnight, I’d add a bit more coconut milk and maybe a few extra eggs and cook it on low. I have *not* tested this method, but those would be my recommendations to avoid having eggs that are super dry when you roll out of bed the next day.

Made it with leftover cooked ground beef from the other night and it turned out GREAT! But it’s a LOT! lol Do you know if it would freeze well?
I’m so glad you liked it!! It does freeze well!

I have an allergy coconut. Can I use almond milk instead? Thanks!
I made this for Christmas. It came out so good! Normally I bake egg casseroles but never again, this one comes out so much better!
I’m SO glad to hear this! Thank you so much for giving it a try and taking the time to come back and leave a review!
Can’t wait to try this out for the family.
I made this last night to eat for breakfast over the next couple of days and it is SO good. I attempt to make frittatas all the time and they come out too rubbery. The slow cooker was a GREAT move.
SO happy to hear this!! Thank you so much! Really appreciate you giving it a try, and taking the time to let me know how it went!

Your photo seems to show cheese – both shredded and fully melted. Is this a stock photo, or am I seeing something else as cheese replacement on top?
Hello! There is no cheese in this recipe or the photos I took of it. It’s the cooked egg and hashbrowns I think you’re seeing 🙂
This is my favorite breakfast to make! It is easy and delicious plus you can substitute a lot of things and it’s just as amazing!
I’m so glad to hear this! We make it a lot and also love how easy it is to swap in what you have on hand! Thank you so much, Mary! 🙂 – B

This is a life saver when meal prepping! I often don’t have time to make breakfast everyday. I live the original version and this last time I swapped the bacon for compliant sausage. So tasty and easy! Helps me stay on track with my breakfasts.
I’m so glad you love it!! Thank you so much!
Exactly what kind of peppers did you use? Bell peppers or hot jalapeno? I couldn’t tell. Thanks!
Bell peppers – sorry about that! I’ll clarify in the recipe.
I make this weekly! I’ve cooked it in the slow cooker, the oven and even tried it on the Traeger, so good! My whole family loves it and it reheats perfectly! Can’t go wrong with this for breakfast or dinner!
Oh amazing!! This is SO great to hear!! Thank you so much for taking the time to come back and let me know – it’s so appreciated! I’m thrilled your family loves this as much as mine! <3 - B
