Deliciously Easy Egg and Cheese Overnight Breakfast Casserole
Don’t worry about what’s for breakfast on Mother’s Day Brunch, do the prep the night before and someone else can just put it in the oven for you! Technically you won’t be cooking on Mothers Day!
What you need for this make ahead breakfast casserole:
- 10 slices of bread,
- Softened Butter
- Garlic Salt
- 16-20 ozs grated cheese, any kind (we prefer cheddar and swiss)
- 6 eggs,
- 3 cups of milk
- ¼ tsp pepper
- ½ tsp dry mustard
- ½ tsp salt
There is really nothing to this recipe and can be put together in just minutes. We use whole grain white bread for the added fiber and nutrition.
I mean it already has egg and cheeses but we can pretend it is healthy for us.
Once you layer the bread and the cheeses, make your egg and milk mixture.
That is it. I told you this overnight egg casserole was a breeze. A lot of the liquid will absorb into the bread allowing for a puffy surprise in your oven.
Bake until golden brown and puffy. Don’t worry, it is going got fall but it sure looks amazing when it comes right out of the oven. Make sure your guests see it then too.
Just love the color of this Deliciously Easy Egg and Cheese Overnight Breakfast Casserole with bread.
Once it has cooled slightly you can serve it up. You definitely want to allow it to cool some of it will be a disaster to cut and serve.
