There’s nothing better than waking up on a Saturday morning and popping a breakfast casserole directly into the oven. The work is all done the night before which leaves you sipping on coffee, patiently waiting for the casserole to bake. That’s my kinda Saturday!
Make Ahead breakfast casseroles are also perfect for holiday’s, especially if you have family in town. No one wants to spend Christmas morning slaving away in the kitchen, which is why making a casserole the night before is key.
This Make Ahead Hash Brown Chorizo Breakfast Casserole is so so so delicious! It’s loaded with hash browns, mexican chorizo, peppers, onions, eggs, and cheese, and baked to golden perfection!
I personally love toppings, so I topped it off with sliced jalapeños, cilantro, and served it with a side of salsa. Absolutely delicious!!
