  1. Can I put this together the night before and just put into the oven in the morning? Trying to save some time.

  2. Lisa – I have not done that before with this recipe but I think that it would work as long as you cover it in the refrigerator over night. Let me know how it turns out. Thank you!

  3. I make this at Christmas. While my other 2 casseroles are baking, hash brown & breakfast casserole, I put this together & pop it in the oven when they come out. I also add the biscuits to the oven at the same time! Organize!
