This is my absolute favorite Overnight Breakfast Casserole for sure!  While this is an breakfast casserole is made with bacon, you can easily substitute it with sausage or ham!

It’s perfect for any holiday morning because it is a make-ahead dish!  You can quickly prep it the night before and pop it in the fridge, in the morning just put it in the oven to cook while your family is doing other fun activities (like opening stockings or egg hunting!).  It’s so easy to put together and a great way to feed breakfast to a crowd so I often make it when we have guests over!  If you are lucky enough to have any leftovers, this is great reheated too!

Things you’ll need for this recipe:

    I made this tonight for my daughter and I in the morning. I used red onions instead of green and it looks really good
