Make-Ahead Breakfast Casserole

This Make-Ahead Sausage Breakfast Casserole is a family favorite. Sausage, cheddar cheese, swiss cheese, and bread cubes baked in eggs. YUM! I love that I can make this casserole the night before and pop it in the oven when I wake up in the morning! PERFECT for overnight guests and hectic weekday mornings. While this is called a breakfast casserole, we love to eat this for dinner. No matter when you eat this, you MUST eat this!! SO good!

Pork is Packed Full of Protein

Eating 20 – 30 grams of protein per meal helps fuel your body and may help you feel fuller. That being said, every 3 ounces of pork is packed full of 22 – 24 grams of protein depending on the
cut.

How to Make Sausage Breakfast Casserole

This casserole is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large skillet, cook breakfast sausage over medium-high heat until crumbled and no longer pink. Drain excess grease. Cut or tear bread slices into small pieces. Place the bread cubes into the bottom of a baking dish. Add cooked sausage and shredded cheese to the dish.In a large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage mixture. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Place the dish in the fridge and refrigerate overnight. Remove the pan from the oven, and bake uncovered until the eggs are set.

  • What kind of sausage for a breakfast casserole? I use Jimmy Dean sausage. You can use any brand or flavor of breakfast sausage in this recipe.
    • Can substitute turkey sausage for a lower calorie option.
  • I used Sunbeam sandwich bread for the bread cubes in this casserole. You can use any leftover bread that you have on hand. This would be super delicious with some sourdough bread slices.
  • You can use any cheeses that you enjoy. Pepper jack, Colby jack, gouda, and mozzarella are all delicious!
  • This is a great base recipe. Feel free to add some vegetables to the casserole. Bell peppers, onion, mushrooms, red bell pepper are all great. 
  • Can you freeze sausage breakfast casserole? Yes! Bake the casserole and cool completely. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and aluminum foil and freeze. To reheat, thaw and reheat covered in the oven or in the microwave.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
