They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it really is. Having it ready to go when you wake up, especially if you don’t have to pour it out of a box, is an awesome thing.
I love make-ahead breakfast casseroles because they give me a good breakfast with very little effort in the morning. These are perfect for the holidays, when family comes to visit, or on a lazy Saturday when you want to feel as relaxed as your family. Check out some of my favorite make-ahead breakfast casseroles here.
Stuffed Crepe & Egg Breakfast Casserole

This casserole combines the love of crepes, ham, and eggs all in one beautiful dish. You can buy premade crepes and just put it all together or make them at home, which is a lot easier than it seems. Make it ahead of time, put it in the fridge overnight, and then bake it and serve it up in the morning.

Get ready to impress your guests with this beautiful casserole featuring whole eggs on top. Add those eggs part way through the cooking process, but chop and create everything else the night before. This is a good one to make after the holidays to use up leftover turkey and ham.

This savory dish has a kick of cranberry and is dressed to impress. I admit, I had to look up what Challah bread was, but now I totally get why this hearty bread is perfect for those nights when you want to toss it in the casserole dish, forget it, and go. With it soaking up the egg mixture overnight and adding that crunchy topping in the morning, you get that perfect combination that makes you smile!
