Holiday mornings are always busy but everyone still needs to eat. We love to make an overnight breakfast casserole for our holiday breakfast. I layer all the ingredients into the pan the night before, refrigerate and then pop it in the oven in the morning. It cooks while we open presents, hunt for Easter eggs or make coffee for guests. That’s right, an overnight breakfast casserole isn’t just for the holidays, it is also great for when you have houseguests.
Most of the recipes below are layered in a large casserole dish so it will feed a crowd easily. There are even a few that can be made in a Crock Pot. It’s a great way to serve a fancy breakfast to guests or holiday revellers without it taking all day. Sound like winning to me!
You’ll find a selection of sweet, savoury and gluten-free overnight breakfast casserole recipes below. There is sure to be one that your family will love!
