Overnight Breakfast Casserole is a dream for busy mornings! The prep happens the night before and then bakes up fresh and bubbling hot in the morning. It's eggs, cheese, milk, a meat of choice and favorite bread all mixed up to make a wonderful dish. The magic happens while you sleep.
Holidays are usually full of excitement and a little bit a chaos! Busyness hurrying around to prepare for the day. Are you picturing it in your head 😉 So make ahead items for brunch or breakfast make for an easy and more enjoyable day for all. I know I want to soak up every moment I can with my family. So on days like this anything that allows me to spend more time with them is just right up my alley!
Overnight Breakfast Casserole is versatile and very delicious! Just change around the meat and cheese combinations and you can make this over and over and have a new dish each time. Today I am making it with Sharp Cheddar and Bacon. I also love to make sausage and a Mexican cheese blend or ham and gouda or swiss. YUM! So many choices! Just pick your favorite and run with it!
The sausage version is a Christmas Morning Tradition along with my Chipped Beef Gravy. For Easter, I serve with fresh fruit, but really the casserole is hearty enough to be served alone. It's a wonderful dish for when you have company or to take to the office to share with your coworkers.
Today it's a perfect way to start our day as we open our Easter Baskets and get ready to head out to Church! I did all the work last night and we get a delicious breakfast/brunch to enjoy today!
Whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together. Then add in meat, cheese, and diced bread. Mix and pour into a buttered or sprayed 9 x 13 dish (today I am using a 10 x 12 dish). You know something close! Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Pull the dish out of the fridge a half hour before baking. This allows the dish to warm a little and not break when baking.
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes to an hour. Devour!
