This Overnight Everything Bagel & Sausage Breakfast Casserole is your traditional casserole with a twist, and ideal for holidays or family gatherings because it’s absolutely delicious, but also convenient and super easy. You can prepare the casserole the night before and simply wake up to pop it in the oven = no mess and less stress.
It’s loaded with Everything Bagel Pieces, breakfast sausage, creamy eggs, and cheese- the perfect combo if you ask me, however feel free to customize the filling by adding kale, bell peppers, mushrooms, or any other idea you might have.
First, add the everything bagel pieces to the bottom of your greased 9 x14 casserole dish. Top with cooked sausage and half of the cheese, and then pour the egg mixture on top. Cover with foil and store in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake! It’s that easy.
You better believe this cheesy deliciousness is going on our Christmas morning menu paired with fresh fruit, crispy breakfast potatoes, a side of greens, and coffee, of course. YUM.YUM.YUM.
