Christmas morning breakfast is a big deal in my house. It’s always such a busy morning with opening gifts and getting ready for the day, but a nice breakfast is important! Opening gifts with our loved ones is always a special time and I think it’s important to savor each and every moment of it so having a nice (but easy!) breakfast is an integral part of the holiday to enjoy after or while opening gifts. This breakfast casserole definitely fits the bill!
While I feel like I often do sweeter holiday breakfasts, this year I’m going savory with this breakfast casserole! It’s loaded with sausage, hash browns, eggs, and cheese! What’s not to love about that?! Although it may seem like a lot of steps, this casserole is really very simple to prepare. If you want to do any prep the night before, you can cook the sausage. You can also save time the morning of by just using thawed hash browns, but I really prefer to cook them a bit before as they get a bit of a crunch to them as they brown. I recommend prepping the casserole early in the morning and then let it cook while opening gifts so it’s ready to go when you are done!
