This isn’t really a pie. There’s no crust. But I cut it out in the shape of a slice of pie. Therefore, it’s a breakfast pie. Don’t fight me on this one.

Have you guys seen the commercials for Krave cereal? The things I would have done to that cereal when I was younger. Bad, bad things. Chocolate inside the cereal? Stupid. Just stupid. I bet it tastes like heaven. Or eating a chocolate bar for breakfast. Which is my heaven.

I’m obsessed with food trucks right now. I can’t help it. They taste just so damn good. Check out @quieroarepas on Twitter and start following them everywhere they go, if you live in Denver. Seriously, I want to live in an arepa.

Ok, so I need to talk about the sad/happy times that occurred over the weekend. My friend Justin recently decided that San Fransisco was a better place to live than Denver. Understandable. I’ve only wanted to move to California like 67 times. So when he had to leave on Sunday at 9pm to venture off to his new home, we decided throwing him a party starting at noon on Saturday and not ending until 2am Sunday was the best decision. These are the best kinds of parties. Mostly because it included almost everyone from our Lake Powell trip, plus some that missed out. So it was like we were back in Powell again. Or at a frat party during hazing week. Is that a real thing? Whatever. All everyone wanted to do was get Justin drunk as could be. Then do mean things to him. Not actually mean, just kind of mean. Like smash cake in his face. Or pick him up and spin him around like a rag doll in hopes of him puking. Guys are so weird.

He never puked. And he ate the cake off his face.

But the best part of it all was that we ended up at my favorite bar downtown where we took over the dance floor. Seriously took it over. I’m pretty sure people outside of our group got pushed. I watched some girl get taken out at the legs when the guys decided it was smart to tackle each other. Either way, it was awesome. So much jumping. I think I lost a toe nail. Ew. They even played this song which is pretty much my favorite song of the week. So dumb, but so catchy. It sounds like he’s saying condom style. My favorite part is at 1:55. You can skip to that part.

It was honestly a fantastic night. I kissed Justin on the cheek probably 26 times and I’ve probably only hugged him a total of 12 times in my life. I haven’t known Justin for very long, but somehow still love the guy. Justin, I hope San Fransisco is everything you had hoped for and more. And we will all miss the sh*t out of you back here. I plan on visiting you soon, taking over your apartment, and CrossFitting at your new gym. Deal? Deal. And if anything, we can reunite next year in the water of Lake Powell. 85 footer anyone?

Easy Crockpot Breakfast Pie

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star

4.3 from 25 reviews

  • Yield: 4-6 1x


  • 8 eggs, whisked
  • 1 sweet potato or yam, shredded
  • 1lb pork breakfast sausage, broken up
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • any extra veggies you want to put in there: peppers, squash, etc.


  1. I greased my crockpot with a bit of coconut oil to make sure none of the egg stuck to it.
  2. Shred your sweet potato. I used the shredding attachment on my food processor to make it super quick, but you could use a grater as well.
  3. Add all ingredients to your crockpot and use a spoon to mix well.
  4. Set it and forget it!! I stole that tagline. I’m gonna get sued. Eeeek.
  5. Place on low for 6-8 hours. I cooked it for more than 7 to make sure the pork sausage was completely cooked through.
  6. Slice it like a pie. Because I said so.

    Loved it!

  2. Jessica A says:

    Threw this bad boy together last minute after work last night. Now my boyfriend and I have breakfast for the week!

    Have you experimented with chorizo in this?

    Thanks, Juli!

    1. juli says:

      No but that sounds delicious! Try it!

  3. Lans says:

    Hi Juli: I only have one ENORMOUS oval crockpot. Can I use it for this recipe, or do I need a smaller one?

    1. juli says:

      you could probably use it still!

      1. Lans says:

        One last thing: Do I put a lid on it while it cooks?

        1. juli says:

          yes, just like a regular crockpot meal

          1. Lans says:

            thanks! You rock!

  4. BTea says:

    Looks like I’m way behind on the times with this recipe, but this was my first attempt at one of your recipes. I left it in over night, about 8 hours, but the pork sausage was pink still. Should I brown the meat before I put it in the Crock Pot or is this just a case of my pot being cheap? That being said the bite I had was delicious and smelled amazing!

    1. juli says:

      the heat could be off in the pot. next time, brown the meat or even cook it completely, that won’t do anything negative to the dish

  5. Dinorah Carr says:

    Lmao “Zombie ass???? going to try this for easter brunch! thanks for sharing.

  6. Andrew says:

    Any way to do this in the oven?

    1. Amber says:

      A similar recipe in my cookbook places it on 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. I’m sure you could do the same with this one.

  7. Amber says:

    We had this for dinner last night. I think I went a little crazy on the veggies, but it still came out great. I used 2 cups leftover ham, 1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic, one large zucchini (2 cups), 1 cup of home-grown sweet peppers, and 2 cups of chopped New Zealand spinach, with a layer of sweet potatoes on the bottom. It came out great with enough for 8 large servings.

    I got a late start on it so I cooked it on high. It was done in 3 hours. For those who had trouble with it getting burnt, I would recommend low for 5-6 hours and leaving it on “keep warm” until you are ready to eat.

    I don’t know who you are but I think I love you. I have read two of your recipes and I am pretty sure you are my people. I will be back with reviews of the recipes later.
