Make ahead breakfast casserole recipes make our life so much easier. With a little bit of work the night before, we can have a very special breakfast on the table without being in the kitchen all morning.
This Overnight Breakfast Casserole is rich with sausage and mozzarella cheese but it also contains the healthy addition of spinach.
We make this often when we have overnight guests, it’s nice to get up in the morning and pop it in the oven and enjoy visiting over coffee with our guests or family as breakfast is cooking.
If we are hosting a large bunch we carve a watermelon into a whale and fill it with fresh fruit and mix up a batch of our special Bloody Marys or serve Mimosas with Grande Marnier
