Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole Recipe

One thing I love to have on hand are easy, throw together recipes for breakfast and brunch. With a playgroup playdate scheduled at our home at least once a month with our friends these easy recipes come in handy. And while my overnight french toast is our go-to for most events this easy sausage and egg breakfast casserole is just as simple and mighty tasty!

I try and stock up on breakfast sausage when I see it on sale so I always have a few packs in the freezer ready for such occasion. And day old bread is never a problem to find in this home. So if you’re hosting people over or simply want an easy dish to make on the weekend and reheat during the week, this breakfast casserole is for you.

Plus, just like the overnight french toast you simply make this casserole the night before and store it in the fridge till a few hours before you need it.

  8. This is a family favorite during the hectic busy holidays. It can serve many people without much effort. Our oven tends to brown things too quickly so I cook this in a water bath to help ensure it cooks evenly.
