This easy breakfast casserole is served every Christmas season in our household, whether it’s eating it at my Moms house Christmas morning or celebrating Christmas Eve with the in-laws. It’s a family favorite and hardly has any left overs. We normally pair it with our favorite cinnamon rolls and some orange juice or coffee. The sausage in this recipe gives the egg dish so much flavor but you can swap the sausage or ground turkey, bacon, or even ham. We prefer to leave veggies out because of the kids in our family but you could easily add some diced green bell peppers or mushrooms too. While we tend to eat it more around the holidays it’s a perfect breakfast casserole for any occasion. It would be great served at a baby or bridal shower or just a ladies brunch.
One of best parts of this dish is the melted cheese you get throughout the dish. We love to use sharp cheddar Heluva Good! Block Cheese® for a flavorful dish. Heluva Good! is made with milk and is a good source of protein and calcium. It’s a good way to balance out those sweet cinnamon rolls. We always like to freshly shred our cheese if we can 🙂
The base of this recipe is a few slices of bread. You let the casserole sit overnight so everything can blend perfectly. It makes for a perfect fluffy casserole dish.
You only need two dishes for this easy breakfast casserole which makes this a less mess meal. You only need one pan to fry the sausage and one bowl to mix it all together.
Once you mix everything together you add it to a 9 x 13 inch baking pan lightly coated with butter and let it sit overnight or for at least 8 hours.
Bake this easy breakfast casserole for about 1 hour and until the cheese is lightly browned. Your house will smell amazing and your family will cheer 🙂
