Reviews for Make-Ahead Breakfast Casserole
Easy and Delicious
Dana, from Lakewood, IL
This recipe is easy to assemble the day before. We did add green onions and it was delicous. We froze the leftovers and had them a few weeks later and it was still great. I plan on making it this weekend for out of town guests.
Great Quick and Easy Recipe

I needed a breakfast dish for a group of women and this was perfect. I loved being able to make it ahead of time and refrigerating it overnight. All I had to do was put it in the oven the next morning and deliver it hot from the oven. I substituted fresh brocolli flowerets and dried stuffing bread cubes for the spinach and seasoned croutons. Definitely a hit.
This Casserole Is Christmas for Us
Kelly, from New Cumberland, PA
This Casserole is a Christmas and Easter staple in our family. Our four children look forward to it all year long, and when it occasionally makes a surprise appearance for a random supper, it is served to cheers!

Very easy to put together. My only concern was regarding if I should cover the dish awhile baking and then remove the cover maybe 10 minutes before it finishes. The recipe doesn't say that. It is my first time making it. Thanks
Make ahead breakfast casserole

I made this and everyone raved. Better with croutons than hash browns, that I usually make. Can use cream of chicken soup and omit mushrooms for different taste. Garnish with green onions, chopped tomatoes and sour cream....
