I spent a great deal of this weekend in our garden harvesting vegetables, cleaning up the empty raised beds, and then figuring out what to do with everything I collected. Thankfully, Miss O’Hara Crock-Pot® 5-in-1 Multi-Cooker works wonders in the kitchen, so I didn’t hesitate to put the lil’ lady to work with our harvest of carrots and spring onions.
Recently, I’ve had several people ask me if I am happy with my new fancy dancy crockpot, and each time I reply that I’m pretty much head-over-heels in love with the gal. I’d marry her if marriage to a crockpot was a thing, but since it isn’t I’ll just glance at her with affection every once in a while and compliment her on her sleek metal non-stick physique. She’s pretty gosh darn amazing.
Imagine putting vegetables in a crockpot for 8 hours and having them still come out crisp. With this little lady, everything that comes out doesn’t have to be mushy. I think that’s the main reason crockpots get a bad wrap. In the olden days of yesteryear, it didn’t matter what went in the crockpot, it always came out looking and tasting the same. Times of changed y’all. Times have changed.
- 4 Cups Red Potatoes, Diced
- 2 Cups Carrots, Peeled & Diced
- 1/4 Cup Sliced Spring Onions (White & Pale Green Part Only)
- 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
- 1 Teaspoon Dry Dill
- 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
- 1/4 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
- 8 Maple Sausage Links
Eggs & Topping:
- 2 Tablespoons Crumbled Feta
- 1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter
- 4 Large Eggs
- Ground Black Pepper
- Dry Dill
- 1 to 2 Tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
- Mix the potatoes, carrots, onions, olive oil, vinegar, dill, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes in a crockpot.
- Arrange the sausages on top of the vegetable mixture.
- Cook on low heat for 8 hours.
- Spoon the cooked vegetables onto a serving plate, being careful to place the sausages on the edge of the plate.
Eggs & Topping:
- Sprinkle the feta cheese over the cooked vegetables.
- Cook the eggs in unsalted butter over medium heat in a large skillet.
- Place the cooked eggs on top of the vegetables, sprinkle with black pepper and dill, and then drizzle with maple syrup.
- Depending on what type of crockpot you have, you may actually be able to fry the eggs in your crockpot. Miss O’Hara Crock-Pot® 5-in-1 Multi-Cooker has a Brown/Sauté setting that makes this possible.
- Serve alongside fresh fruit.
- Breakfast for dinner is truly one of my favorite things, however, you can also cook the vegetables and sausage overnight for an easy to assemble breakfast the next morning.
- Add a few dashes of hot sauce on top of each egg before serving.
- Add a clove or two of garlic to the vegetable mixture when cooking.
