I’m a big fan of egg bakes. I’ve shared versions of egg bakes before (here and here) and I just can’t quit them. And really, what’s to quit? Eggs, cheese, meat… bring it on. Of course when I stumbled onto this recipe in the new Gooseberry Patch cookbook, Slow-Cooker Fall Favorites, I had to make it. And of course it did not disappoint.
