An Important Rule Of Thumb Everyone Needs To Remember When Making An Egg Casserole In The Slow Cooker

Slow cooker egg casserole can be an incredible breakfast. However, if you forget this rule it can be a disaster. We now know the reason why and it will change everything.

The One Most Important Rule For Making Egg Casserole In A Slow Cooker Is: 

Set the Temperature to Low
For breakfast success, always cook egg casseroles in the slow cooker over low heat. As with most breakfast casseroles, this slow-cooker version has a lot of leeway and versatility, with one exception: the temperature setting. While most slow-cooker recipes can be adjusted to cook over low or high heat, eggs don't follow suit.

Why Low?
Unlike heartier foods, eggs benefit from a lower cooking temperature. The result is an evenly cooked casserole with soft, creamy, fluffy eggs.

So what's wrong with a high heat setting? Two things, actually.

Setting the slow cooker to high won't necessarily cook your egg casserole any faster. Instead, it's likely to cook unevenly, with the outside becoming overcooked or even burnt, while the center portion remains undercooked. Additionally, the high heat can also affect the texture of the eggs, making them less soft and more rubbery.

 

Finished!

Now that you know why you need to follow this rule, your slow cooker egg casserole will be even more delicious. Have you done this when making an egg casserole before?
