I love making casseroles all year long, particularly for their time-saving benefits. They generally don’t take too many ingredients, and usually they’re ones I already have on hand. The prep time is minimal for most recipes, and then you just put it in the oven to bake while you go take care of other tasks.
Having a few go-to casserole recipes can help simplify your holidays and keep stress at bay. Guests drop in unexpectedly? No problem! They also are great gifts, too. Trust me – there isn’t one person on your list that wouldn’t love the gift of a home-cooked meal that they didn’t have to make for themselves.
My Sausage Breakfast Casserole recipe is a mash-up of a number of different ones that I’ve tried with tweaks that make it a family-favorite. We occasionally eat it for dinner, I make it for weekend brunch, and it gets served in the morning on Christmas while everyone recuperates from opening gifts.
