This Crock Pot Blueberry Breakfast Casserole is the perfect dish to get your day started! The nuts and grains compliment the bright bursts of the fresh blueberries in this filling casserole.When Miss Add (my 7 year old) hears that Mommy is making “the blueberry stuff” for breakfast she is thrilled. We have been making some form of this blueberry bake for years now. We found the original years ago in Fresh from the Farmstand and truth be told, we have made it every which way to Sunday ever since. We have made it into muffins and even made a lightened up version.
Crock Pot Blueberry Breakfast Casserole
So, it comes as no surprise that as soon as I got my casserole crock pot, I wanted to give ‘er a try with my favorite morning casserole! We just loved it. We usually choose blueberries and walnuts for this casserole, but you can use mixed berries, strawberries, cherries, cranberries, etc. and chopped pecans or almonds instead of walnuts. Actually cranberries with walnuts and a little bit of orange peel sounds like an ah-mazing combo that we will be trying soon… stay tuned!
A couple notes:
- When serving this up, it will tend to be crumbly if served warm… which is fine by us! But, if you want a more slice-able casserole piece, it will likely slice up better after cooling (but who wants to wait???)
- While we used a 9 x13 casserole crock pot, you can use a 5-6 qt oval, you will just need to watch it the first time to see how long it takes to cook up. When you get towards the end of cooking, you may want to remove the lid to let some of the steam evaporate and help the center finish setting up.
- I cannot predict how a dish will do if you choose to substitute for dietary restrictions because I have not tried those ingredients myself.

- 1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts

All cooking times are merely estimates and vary. You should always pay close attention the first time you make a crock pot recipe to note how long your unit takes.
Slow Cooker Recommendation
We loved using our 9 x13 casserole crock for this recipe, however it should work fine in a regular 5-6qt crock pot as long as you watch your cooking times closely the first time you try it. Psst… that should be a general rule of thumb when trying any new crock pot recipe.
