This casserole is the perfect busy morning solution. Whether trying to get the kids out the door on a busy school day or relaxing with a mimosa Christmas morning while the kids open their gifts, it allows you to get a hearty breakfast in them.

This best thing about this make ahead breakfast casserole is made the night before. You let it stand overnight in the refrigerator so all of the ingredients absorb one another and then you pop it in the oven in the morning while sipping your coffee before the kids wake up.

The second best thing about this casserole is how well it freezes. Once it cools, cut it into individual serving sizes and freeze. Take out a serving and pop it in the microwave weeks or months later.
