Easy Sausage Breakfast Casserole
My kids love a good sausage breakfast casserole and this one is simple yet very delicious. The simple ingredients in this sausage, egg and cheese breakfast casserole combine to make a delicious but easy breakfast casserole.
Now I normally make this in my 9×13 pyrex baking dish, however, around the holidays when life gets crazy I like to use these 9×13 foil pans so I can just toss the pan away. No cleaning involved! In fact, I use them much more than I want to admit around the holidays!
Can you make this sausage casserole ahead of time?
One of my favorite things about breakfast casseroles is that you can make them ahead of time! So I like to mix them up when I have an extra pocket of time, since I tend to not function the best before coffee. 🙂 It only takes about 15 minutes to prep and mix it together and then I have breakfast waiting in the fridge!
An uncooked breakfast casserole can last in the fridge overnight and up to 24 hours before it needs to be baked. Simply prepare the casserole up until baking, just cover the pan place in the fridge. When you’re ready to bake it, uncover and bake as directed.
How to store breakfast casserole:
This easy breakfast casserole is so easy to store, too! If you happen to have leftovers, you can keep them in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 4 days.
Or you can freeze them! Either freeze in an airtight container, ziplock bag or wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Bring the casserole back to room temperature before warming back up.
