Overnight Breakfast Casserole - this classic make ahead dish is filled with sausage, eggs, and cheese

So I know people plan for their New Year’s Eve parties with fun appetizers & cocktails and others plan for New Year’s dinner with black eyed peas and greens. But what about New Year’s Day breakfast? I know that’s the last thing on a lot of people’s minds when they are more worried about the night before. But remember breakfast is the most important meal of the day (sounding like a broken record).

But with all the hustle and bustle of getting ready tonight how about we just add one more thing to your list. I promise you won’t regret it. So tomorrow morning when you are rolling out of bed because you stayed up late ringing in the new year (or because of a baby feeding often since she’s going through a growth spurt oh wait just me?) – your stomach (and you toddler – just me again?) will thank you in the morning when all you have to do is pop this bad boy in the oven.

Overnight Breakfast Casserole - Make this ahead of time and just pop in the oven in the morning. Warm, cheesy and delicious!

And who knows maybe a New Year’s Day breakfast is going to be the new thing instead of all the other food traditions. Well I won’t go that far, but you could now make it your family tradition.
