Holiday Brunch Casserole Recipe
But it is such a classic, this brunch casserole could really be used for any Holiday or Celebration. (Or even for a comfort food, weekday night meal!)
Here are a few tips for this one too. This is a perfect breakfast recipe to use the bread that is getting a little stale or even that manager’s special marked down find.
Also, this is a make ahead recipe too! Yay, I love that I can make it the night before- don’t we love a time saver, as well as money saver?! Just cover with saran (or I love these reusable food covers), refrigerate and then pop it in the oven the next morning. It really does help you enjoy the Christmas morning festivities that much more when you don’t have to worry about making the meal.
Usually I just make this with sausage BUT if I am feeling extra fancy I make it with “double meat” as we call it- both bacon and sausage. That’s especially a favorite with the teenage boys in out house. And yes that dry mustard gives it a great little flare.
