PIN the Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole to try it later!
I admit I was a little skeptical the first time I tried cooking eggs in the slow cooker. But that experiment was such a success, and it taught me two things about slow-cooked eggs.
First, the finished dish will be a little softer than something similar that’s cooked using higher heat on the stove (which actually makes it perfect to store in the fridge and reheat later.)
And second, the long slow cooking time infuses the eggs with the flavors from the other ingredients in a way that produces delightful results.
This Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole with Artichokes would be a lovely dish to put in the slow cooker any time you want breakfast that’s ready in a few hours, or it would be delicious for a mid-day brunch, or a light dinner. If you haven’t tried eggs in the slow cooker yet, give it a try!
What ingredients do you need for this recipe?
- Artichoke Hearts packed in water (affiliate link)
- Roasted Red Peppers in a jar (affiliate link)
- green onions
- Feta cheese
- Spike Seasoning (affiliate link), or other all-purpose seasoning blend
- fresh-ground black pepper to taste
- parsley for garnish (optional)
Which Slow Cooker Did I Use?
I made this slow cooker frittata in the Ninja Slow Cooker (affiliate link), which is a large oval slow cooker. If you have the Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker (affiliate link) that’s shaped like a casserole dish, that would also be perfect for this recipe. But any large slow cooker will also work, although the cooking time might be slightly longer.

How to make Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole with Artichokes:
(Scroll down for complete recipe with nutritional information.)
- Start by draining a can of artichoke hearts. (If the budget doesn’t permit the whole artichoke hearts like this, pieces will work just as well.)
- I wanted the artichoke hearts spread throughout the egg, so I cut them into pieces that were fairly small.
- I also drained the jar of roasted red pepper and cut those quite small as well.
- Be sure to spray the inside of the slow cooker well with non-stick spray, then put the Artichoke Hearts packed in water (affiliate link), red peppers, and sliced green onions in the bottom of the cooker.
- Beat 8 eggs, until yolks and whites are well combined.
- Pour the eggs over the other ingredients in the slow cooker, and give it a gentle stir to evenly distribute the artichokes, peppers, and green onions.
- Then sprinkle the crumbled Feta over the top. (Season with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) and freshly-ground black pepper. I forgot to do that until after I took this photo!)
- Cook on low for about 3 hours, or until the breakfast casserole is as firm as you’d like it. (I’d start to check after 2 hours, but it will probably take a bit longer than that.)
- Serve hot, garnished with parsley if desired. This will keep for quite a few days in the fridge and can be reheated in the microwave or in a pan on the stove.

Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole with Artichokes
Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole with Artichokes also has red pepper and Feta, and this is easy and delicious.
- 14 oz. can small artichoke hearts, drained and cut into small pieces (you can use artichokes that are already cut, which are cheaper)
- 12 oz. jar roasted red peppers. drained and cut into small pieces
- 1/4 cup sliced green onions
- 8 eggs, beaten well until yolks and whites are completely combined
- 4 oz. crumbled Feta cheese
- Spike Seasoning to taste, I used about 1 tsp. (if you don’t have Spike, any all-purpose seasoning will work, see notes)
- fresh-ground black pepper to taste
- 2 T chopped parsley for garnish (optional)
- Pour out artichoke hearts into a colander placed in the sink and let them drain well.
- While artichokes drain, slice the green onions and crumble the feta.
- Spray the slow cooker insert well with non-stick spray.
- Remove artichoke hearts to the cutting board and pour out the roasted red peppers into the colander to drain.
- Cut the artichoke hearts into fairly small pieces (quarters, or smaller if they’re large) and put them in the bottom of the slow cooker insert.
- Cut the drained red peppers into pieces about 1/2 inch square and put them into the slow cooker.
- Add the green onions to the slow cooker.
- Beat the eggs until whites and yolks are completely combined and then pour eggs over the vegetables in the slow cooker.
- Use a fork to gently stir, so the artichoke pieces, red pepper pieces, and sliced green onions are well distributed.
- Sprinkle the crumbled Feta over the top and season with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) and freshly-ground black pepper.
- Cook on low for 2-3 hours or until the eggs are as firm as you’d like them and the cheese is melted. (I cooked mine about 2 1/2 hours, but I think the Ninja might cook a little hotter than some other slow cookers.
- Cut into pieces while the frittata is still in the slow cooker.
- Serve hot, sprinkled with chopped parsley to garnish if desired.
I used my Ninja Cooker, but if you don’t have a Ninja this is perfect to make in the Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker. You can use a 5 or 6 quart oval slow cooker, but the frittata will be a little thicker.

I cooked it following the recipe and all the ingredients. Despite the taste is not awful, the actual look is disgusting. I do not understand the reviews and the stars. My slow cooker is medium and the ‘frittata’ is like over 7 cm high! If you cook it, low your expectations …
I’m sorry you are disappointed. I didn’t recommend this recipe for a medium-sized slow cooker. This is what it says in the post:
“I made this slow cooker frittata in the Ninja Slow Cooker (affiliate link), which is a large oval slow cooker. If you have the Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker (affiliate link) that’s shaped like a casserole dish, that would also be perfect for this recipe.”
You can see from the photos that if you had followed my instructions to use a larger slow cooker it would have been the right thickness.
You mention that the Ninja makes it easy to sauté the kale…. yet… there’s no kale listed in the ingredients or mentioned anywhere else?
No, this recipe doesn’t have kale! That was probably a mistake made when updating the recipe format. It looks like I copied the link for the Ninja cooker from this frittata recipe and forgot to edit out the part about the kale! Thanks for catching and sorry about the confusion!
Could you do this on low overnight for 8 hours or such?
I doubt it but I haven't tried it myself so it might be worth a try. Let me know if it works that way.
