This Easy Overnight Breakfast Casserole with Sausage and Spinach is such a time saver.    It is assembled the night before and placed in the fridge for an easy breakfast or brunch dish.   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. 

 

How to make this Overnight Breakfast Casserole:

This sausage, cheese spinach egg bake is rich with sausage and mozzarella cheese but it also contains the healthy addition of spinach.

 

  • In a large bowl, combine the cooked sausage, cubed bread, 1 cup of the cheese, drained spinach and toss together well until evenly distributed
  • Spoon this mixture into a buttered 9X13 casserole dish
  • In another bowl, whisk the eggs, then add the milk, salt, and pepper. Whisk until smooth, pour over the bread cube mixture, distributing evenly.
  • Cover the casserole dish and store in the fridge overnight, or for up to 18 hours.
  • The next morning remove the casserole from the fridge and let sit for 30-45 minutes to bring it up to room temperature. Remove lid.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  • Bake casserole for 1 hour until set and the top is golden brown. Top with additional cheese.

 

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.  And this is the kind of cheese sausage and egg recipes that everyone will love.  

If we are hosting a large bunch we carve a Whale Watermelon and fill with fresh fruit.  Also, we will mix up a batch of our special Bloody Marys or serve Mimosas with Grande Marnier to go with this sausage spinach cheese casserole.
