In a bowl, beat an egg with kefir, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. The kefir is packed probiotic food for a healthy gut — not bad for a morning meal.

Next, stir in half the sheep cheese, half the goat cheese and half the green onions. Then in a medium bowl, mix together the sweet potatoes, sausage, peppers, and remaining cheeses and onions.

Add the mix to the slow cooker and pour the egg mixture over layers and set on low. Let the breakfast casserole cook for the next eight hours.
