Overnight casseroles are like a nice insurance policy. You can sleep well, knowing that you're covered no matter what happens. They're fun to make and all you have to do is pop them in the oven before sitting down to a hearty and delicious meal. And breakfast is the perfect time for a make-ahead meal of these overnight breakfast casserole recipes.
Make sure that you do refrigerate these recipes - most contain eggs and other perishable ingredients that won't last overnight unless they're chilled.
Cover them thoroughly with plastic wrap or foil before chilling. Put them straight into the oven from the fridge and bake until they are hot and browned.
You can also change these recipes any way you'd like. Don't like the cheese listed in the recipe? Use another one! Choose turkey bacon over regular bacon, or try chicken sausage in place of pork sausage. You can also change the seasonings. Use thyme instead of basil, or add some crushed red pepper flakes if you like heat in the morning.
Enjoy these easy and hearty recipes!
