Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole

The following post is from contributing writer Kristia.

Christmas morning is a whirlwind of activity at my house, and I don’t want to miss a single minute of it. So instead of standing at the stove cooking up a hot breakfast, I simply prepare this hearty egg and sausage breakfast casserole on the afternoon of Christmas Eve and refrigerate it overnight. On Christmas morning, the prep is already done, so all I have to do is stick the casserole in the oven. It takes about 50 minutes to bake, and during that time I’m enjoying my morning with my family, not rushing to prepare breakfast.
