Cheesy Sausage Overnight Breakfast Casserole Recipe Is Delicious Any Time of Day

The holidays are especially hectic, and let’s face it, sometimes we need simple meals to reduce stress. Here’s a way to make your life a little easier. Throw this easy breakfast casserole together a day in advance then pop it in the oven in the morning. While it bakes, you can do other things and before you know it, this cheesy sausage breakfast casserole will be ready to eat!

This easy baked breakfast casserole recipe is perfect during a hectic week, but I especially appreciate these types of recipes if I’m hosting family or traveling. I think you will, too. They’re also great for a potluck holiday brunch, which we’ve been to with neighbors a couple of times. If you have any leftovers (which is pretty doubtful!), you can store theme in the fridge for up to five days. When you’re ready, just reheat in the oven or microwave or oven until warmed all the way through.

This recipe is great for a hearty lunch or even dinner (who doesn't love breakfast for dinner?). An easy, delicious meal any time of day!

Recipe Notes

  • I used pork sausage in this recipe, but you also can use ground turkey, beef or chicken.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave or oven.
  • Serve for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner with a side of fruit or vegetables.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Cook the sausage over medium heat until evenly brown. Drain.
  2. In a bowl, mix together mustard powder, salt, milk and eggs. Add the sausage, bread cubes and cheese. Stir. Once everything is coated evenly, pour into a greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Cover dish and chill in the refrigerator overnight, or at least 8 hours.
