Rise and Shine, Reheat and Go!

My requirements for a weekday breakfast are simple: filling and fast! And this Sausage Egg Casserole is both! It’s perfect as a make-ahead breakfast for a busy week, but also for feeding a crowd. I make it a lot for lake trips, when we have house guests staying with us, and for brunch gatherings. It’s great to bake in advance because it reheats so beautifully! Just reheat it in a 300°F oven for about 20 minutes before serving. Or slice it into squares and reheat individually in the microwave for about 30 seconds for a quick weekday breakfast. If you’re tired of your cereal routine, this breakfast casserole is for you!
