This simple but tasty breakfast casserole is the perfect make-ahead meal. Prep the night before for a delicious and easy breakfast the next morning.
When I was growing up my family didn’t have a whole lot of traditions, but on birthdays we always had breakfast casserole. Always. And it rocked!
My sister has since continued the breakfast casserole tradition and over the years she has honed our mom’s basic recipe to the point of perfection. Seriously friends, this simple but delicious recipe is so good you might cry. My husband was in heaven the first time I made it, and my girls gobbled it up like they had never seen food before!
The best thing about this recipe is that you can whip it up the night before, then just pop it in the oven in the morning for a hot, delicious, and hearty meal. It is great for a Sunday brunch or even for busy weekday mornings. Try it soon. You will not regret it!
