Breakfast Casseroles for Christmas Morning or Feeding Holiday Houseguests

2 years ago

Whether you have houseguests and want to make a breakfast that will impress, or you'd just like to have something nutritious to feed the kids after opening presents, breakfast casseroles are perfect for the holidays. What's a breakfast casserole? There are endless variations, but it's a baked dish that usually includes eggs, and may or may not include other ingredients like bread, potatoes, tortillas, cheese, bacon, sausage, or mushrooms.

One reason this type of one-dish breakfast is so popular is because most can be made ahead and kept in the fridge overnight and then baked the next morning, and some are even cooked in a slow cooker. Breakfast casseroles don't need a lot of careful watching or fussing over the recipe; just about anything that tastes good with eggs can be added. Here are a few breakfast casserole combinations that sound good to me, but if you have a good breakfast casserole recipe, please share in the comments.
