I love Love LOVE breakfast! But not so enthusiastic about being the one that has to get up and make it. Just being honest here. I can make a mean breakfast for dinner, but something about getting my rear out of bed to cook, and make dishes that need to be done, all before I have had some coffee and everyone else has gotten up. Sooooo the idea of a make ahead casserole that you put in the fridge and then pop into the oven when you feel like eating was one that I ADORED!! I had made one years and years ago for Christmas day with ham and cheese and bread etc. but I don’t know what happened to my recipe. Plus I wanted to try something different. I know Kevin loves sausage, eggs, and hash browns for breakfast so that was my jumping off point. I jumped off and ran with it.
This is seriously so simple it is ridiculous. Which makes it even better in my mind. I love pouring my love and time into main dishes but for some reason, breakfast, not so much. So the fact that I made dinner and then could jump right on this to get it ready was awesome. All you do it a bit of browning, chopping, and put it all together.
You could add more to this is you want. The possibilities are really endless. If you want more Italian flavors I would use Italian sausage (and they do have Italian flavored turkey sausage now), Parmesan cheese, flat-leaf parsley, and use an Italian seasoning blend to flavor the eggs. WOW now I am kind of excited about breakfasts!!
